Aims and Objectives

UK-CIM is an initiative to organise a regular UK based meeting on causal inference as a collaborative effort across the methodology research community in the health, economics and social sciences.

UK-CIM aims to:

  • Provide a forum for people interested in causal inference to meet informally
  • Provide a forum for early career researchers to highlight their work
  • Offer opportunities for networking to foster future research opportunities and collaborations

Please note that registration for the meeting is not restricted to people from the UK, and we welcome participation from anyone who would like to attend.

Theme of the Meeting

The theme of the meeting is “Causal Inference in Health, Economic and Social Sciences”. Causal inference is broadly defined, and the focus is on methodology and challenging applications, though presentations relating to interesting applications that highlight necessary methodological extensions are also encouraged.
