By the end of 2018 the Swedish Initiative for Research on Microdata in the Social And Medical Sciences (SIMSAM), funded by the Swedish Research Council, has been active for 10 years. This will be acknowledged by a free open national one-day symposium in Stockholm 16 May reflecting on how the achievements and experiences of SIMSAM and other parties engaged in register-based research can help develop register-based research in Sweden in the future.

In addition to SIMSAM presentations, challenges and possibilities related to register-based research will be highlighted by members of the scientific advisory board of SIMSAM and by representatives of the National Board of Health and Welfare, Statistics Sweden and the Swedish National Data Service.

There will be poster sessions during lunch and coffee breaks and during the mingle after the last session. Scientists who want to present their research via a poster are to include the poster title upon registeration. Poster size: 80 x 120 cm (width x height).
