UK-Causal Inference Meeting 2015
The University of Bristol hosted the
UK-CIM 2015, which took place on Wednesday 15th to Friday 17th April 2015. These webpages are an archive from the event.
On Tuesday, April 14th, Miguel Hernan from Harvard University
will offer an introductory one day course on causal inference for early careers researchers, or for those new to the topic.
Aims and Objectives
UK-CIM is an initiative to organise a regular UK based meeting on causal inference as a collaborative
effort across the methodology research community in the health, economics and social sciences.
UK-CIM aims to:
Please note that registration for the meeting is not restricted to people from the UK,
and we welcome participation from anyone who would like to attend.
- Provide forum for people interested in causal inference to meet informally
- Provide a forum for early career researchers to highlight their work
- Offer opportunities for networking to foster future research opportunities and collaborations
Theme of the Meeting
The theme of the meeting is "Causal Inference in Health, Economic and Social Sciences".
Causal inference is broadly defined, and the focus is on methodology and challenging applications,
though presentations relating to interesting applications that highlight necessary methodological
extensions are also encouraged.

SuSTaIn is Statistics
underpinning Science, Technology and Industry, a programme with the ambitious goal
of strengthening the discipline of Statistics in the UK, by equipping it to face
the challenges of future applications. Thus the focus is on rigorous and innovative
new theory and methodology – core statistics for the 21st century – aimed at and
stimulated by generic challenges raised by the ‘data revolution’, in areas as diverse
as genomics, astronomy, telecommunications and finance.
It is funded principally by a 3.5million Science and Innovation award from EPSRC,
and partly by the University of Bristol, and runs from 2006 to 2016.
