Record Linkage Workshop

Friday, September 20, 2019 - 9:00am

Session Description

Explore how subject matter experts in four distinct fields of work use machine learning methods to link databases together. What works? What doesn’t? Leverage their collective knowledge and discover new approaches for overcoming common methodological challenges.

This event will include four interactive presentations, a Q&A panel with all speakers, and a poster competition awarding $250 to one winner. 

Poster Competition

Participants are invited to submit a poster proposal for presentation at the workshop. Submissions (due August 1, 2019) will be reviewed by the planning committee and those who are invited to present at the workshop will receive free admission to the event, free poster printing, and a chance at winning $250. Submissions should address research that uses machine learning methods to link records. Information about the poster competition including deadlines and judging criteria can be found using the link below.
