Thursday 16 September – Friday 17 September 2021

This is event is part of the Fry Conference Series, being held to celebrate the move of the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol to the recently refurbished Grade II listed Fry Building at the heart of the university campus.

In 1871, Florence Nightingale published the second of two seminal papers on the preparation of hospital data.  These are still widely regarded as some of the most important works in the history of statistics. Exactly 150 years later, with challenges from climate change to epidemics, unlocking the potential of data is more important than ever. Where will you fit in?
