2022 Conference

19 July 2021

The next International Population Data Linkage Network (IPDLN) Conference will take place in September 2022, directed by ADR UK (Administrative Data Research UK). The event will be an opportunity to hear about innovative data linkage research from across the globe; take part in stimulating workshops; and network with like-minded experts within the field of population data linkage.

The exact date and format of next year’s conference is yet to be confirmed, but we hope to welcome you to Edinburgh in person for the event. IPDLN members will be the first to hear when the dates and theme of the conference are confirmed.
