This is the event for local area researchers, analysts and intelligence officers working in local areas who want to continue their professional development. We are looking for keynote speakers and workshops.


Our 2019 conference aims to equip delegates with ideas, tools and techniques for influencing decision-makers and helping them to deliver improved outcomes based on robust data, evidence and research.

This year our focus is on collaboration.  We want to hear from local area researchers, analysts, academic researchers and policy-makers about collaborative work they are doing to provide evidence or influence service delivery, either

  • within their own organisations (across departments)
  • with local neighbourhoods/residents/patients/services users
  • across combined authorities
  • with health, police, voluntary or other local service providers
  • with academic research institutions or agencies

Your themes can include economic development, health and social care, data sharing and open data, artificial intelligence, automation, data warehousing, innovative methodologies, performance management, and aggregation and visualisation;

And we are interested in a broad range of papers from the general to the specific and at all geographies, which might be of interest to our LARIA members. We are open to your ideas.

To submit ideas, complete the submission form and return to

Deadline for submissions: Friday 11 January 2019.
