We would like to invite you to participate in our forthcoming Critical Data Marathon a FREE event taking place in London on 6-7 September 2014. The event is collaboratively organised between researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), University College London, King’s College London, and Imperial College London.The data marathon will bring together frontline healthcare providers (nurses, pharmacists, doctors) with data scientists to answer clinically-relevant questions over the course of a weekend. Participants will work with a unique, public-access critical care database called MIMIC-II.Why you should attend:
- hear from leading speakers on big data and the movement in open-source
- interact and collaborate with a diverse group of curious and interested health researchers
- gain experience with MIMIC-II, a large open-source, clinical Intensive Care database

Who should attend:
- Computer scientists and engineers with experience or interest in SQL, python, R, etc.
- Data analysts and biostatisticians
- Clinicians or other healthcare workers with an interest in research

The weekend will begin with talks by experts in data science and clinical medicine. Following this, participants will have the opportunity to work together in groups to answer clinically relevant questions, and present back to the group at the end of the weekend. We expect some of the studies to lead to published papers.
