About the event

Urban analytics research helps cities run more efficiently, improves quality of life for inhabitants, and increases our understanding of how humans interact with and navigate their built environment. At the same time, urban analytics research is a fast-moving target: data availability, state-of-the-art methods, and research and policy priorities are all quickly evolving. 

This workshop, sponsored by The Alan Turing Institute, brings together experts from a range of backgrounds to help chart an urban analytics research agenda, with the aim of pushing the boundaries of (urban) sciences for the public good. We invite participants from a variety of career stages—in particular early career—and institutional backgrounds to contribute to this conversation and help identify an agenda for impactful and cutting-edge urban analytics research and to help ensure this research tackles real-world challenges and issues. 

Registration includes coffee/tea breaks and lunch on Thursday and Friday; and a reception will be held on Thursday evening. Draft programme available for download in the sidebar.
