Big Data for Oral Health Knowledge; How to get the Big Answers–Successful Completion of the Workshop

After successful completion of the Workshop Big Data for Oral Health Knowledge; How to get the Big Answers that occurred in conjunction with 2015 IADR/AADR/CADR General Session & Exhibition in Boston on March 14, 2015, the participants sensed that there is still a lot of work ahead of the community.

This blog post will share a first batch of resources that were mentioned during the workshop by some of the presenters.

The organizers would also like to use the opportunity to thank all presenters as well as the participants for their time and efforts. Special thanks goes to IADR and Internet2, both have contributed substantial resources to make this event happen.
