This year, the 2021 Critical Care Datathon will be hosted as a concurrent event in Sydney and Melbourne on the 26th & 27th November, 2021.
Brought to you by the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS), in partnership with the Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI), the University of Sydney, the National University of Singapore and the University of Melbourne, the Critical Care Datathon aims to bring together clinicians, data scientists, researchers and anyone interested in using data for health-related research to inform and improve outcomes.
Please note, the while the datathons across both countries will run concurrently, the registration process will be managed separately. For Singapore attendees who wish to join the datathon through the National University of Singapore, please click here. Australian-based attendees please continue to use this site.
