Vol 3 No 4 (2018): Conference Proceedings for IPDLC 2018
The IPDLN 2018 conference attracted almost 500 high quality abstracts, of which more than 80 were from students or trainees. We are delighted that those accepted for presentation are being published in this issue of the IJPDS. This is a tangible example of the successful partnership between the IPDLN and the IJPDS. The abstracts covered a broad range of topics from public engagement to artificial intelligence, and attracted more than 520 delegates from 16 countries, and were the backbone of the terrific content presented at the conference. New collaborations were formed or strengthened through international collaborative workshops, and the many informal hallway conversations and meetings that took place against the backdrop of the Canadian Rockies. All of us at the IPDLN are looking forward to the next conference, which will take place in Adelaide in 2020.
