Longer than our standard monthly meetings, this two half-day event aims to capture the feeling of our residential six-monthly meetings in an online format. Packed with content including interesting talks, informal networking opportunities, an exhibition space you can browse at your leisure, and a social event, this is set to be the Turing Urban Analytics event of the year.

About the event

This series brings together members of the urban analytics research community once a month for presentations and discussion of recent research, hosted by the Turing’s Urban Analytics programme.

Although aimed at academics (at all career stages), it is envisaged that there will also be sessions with participation from stakeholders in industry and government.
