The open national SIMSAM meeting 12-13 October 2016 was held in Norrköping and organized by SIMSAM MEB Family Design and SIMSEG. The meeting focused on methodology such as causal inference and network analysis in register-based research. In addition, updates on a number of relevant initiatives as well as legislation of importance were discussed. The meeting, which also featured a popular poster session, attracted close to 100 participants and it was especially encouraging that so many enthusiastic PhD students and postdocs, as well as participants from non-SIMSAM nodes, joined the meeting.
Presentations from the meeting can be accessed via http://simsam.nu/past-events-and-presentations/.
SIMSAM is highly involved in the organization of NordicEpi 2017, to be held 13-15 September 2017 in Lund, www.nordicepi2017.com.
