  • BigSurv20 award winners
    • Poster competition winners
    • Student paper competition
    • Big Data Challenge winner!
  • BigSurv20 special issue journals
  • The future of BigSurv - Where does BigSurv go from here? What does the future of the BigSurv "franchise" look like? Will there be a BigSurv22 and, if so, will it be "live" or virtual?
