Following the success of last year’s Presidential Event, BSA President, Professor John Holmwood has announced a one-day seminar/workshop this October on ‘The Challenge of Big Data’. This event will take place at the British Library Conference Centre, London on Friday, 25 October 2013 between 09:30-16:45.

Organised in collaboration with Dr Emma Uprichard (Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies, University of Warwick) and Dr Abby Day (Department of Sociology, Goldsmiths), this joint event of the BSA and the British Library will use a workshop format to address issues around administrative data, its linkage to other large data sets, and the increased proprietorial interest in large data – all of which pose a fundamental challenge for the social sciences to confront big data with big questions.

BSA members can attend this event for only £10 (Non BSA Members £30) and due to expected high demand, places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
