The FAM is an annual one-day symposium targeting hot topics of relevance to society and the place of statistics and methodology therein.

Topic of this year's FAM: Data confidentiality.

In the morning, we will begin with keynote lectures and conclude with a debate around the core subject and a networking lunch. The afternoon session is reserved for a workshop specifically for young researchers on selected topics.

The keynote lecture will offer an overview of data confidentiality including examples of data breaches and some solutions and recommendations. This will be followed by a series of lectures on two main themes. The first theme is about Experiences since the implementation of the GDPR, including talks on “maintaining data confidentiality” with speakers from both public and private institutions. The second theme will be on Data Sharing including lectures on “Guidelines on Anonymity and Pseudonymization in Research”.

In the afternoon, we work in small groups chaired by experts on topics s.a.: anonymity and pseudonymization, merging own research data with protected data and data confidentiality do’s and dont's.
