DataSHIELD Conference (Online) 10-11 November 2021
The DataSHIELD Advisory Board are organising a two day conference to be held on 10-11 November 2021. This will look to the past, present and future of DataSHIELD and the community, showcasing achievements from the first ten years, highlighting scientific advances that privacy protected distributed analysis has helped facilitate, and providing tasters of new community developments, functionality, and applications,
The agenda will include a mix of talks and demonstrations, and discussion sessions to facilitate DataSHIELD community-led solutions to a range of development and application challenges. See the Agenda on Eventbrite
This conference is suitable for:
- those unfamiliar with DataSHIELD, or who have a potential new use-case and wish to find out more
- current DataSHIELD users - including researchers and developers
- those developing new statistical methodology, functionality or infrastructure for DataSHIELD.
We are accepting abstract submissions for short talks relating to scientific advances that have been facilitated using DataSHIELD, with prizes available for the best presentations by Early Career Researchers. In particular, we are looking for examples of how disseminated analysis has been used to facilitate other scientific progress; presentations may therefore relate to scientific advances in any field.
We also welcome proposals for demonstrations or discussion sessions on any topic related to DataSHIELD technical & methodological development, usecases or ethico-legal-social issues. In order to compile an agenda relevant for the DataSHIELD contributor community, the abstract deadline is Thursday 30 September 2021.
For further details, see our Events page.

If you couldn't make this June session- don’t worry, we plan to repeat (and fine-tune) this presentation monthly for the foreseeable future.
New Update: Version 6.1.1
We have just released the lastest update of DataSHIELD - a maintenance update for the main Version 6.1 release which went live in the latter part of last year. The full update notes are available at our latest release page.
We have also started planning the release of DataSHIELD v6.2. Now would be a good time for feedback on what you would like to see featured in it. Please post a request on forum (sign up for free) or use our Get in Touch page regarding this.
