This is event is part of the Fry Conference Series, being held to celebrate the move of the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol to the recently refurbished Grade II listed Fry Building at the heart of the university campus.
In 1871, Florence Nightingale published the second of two seminal papers on the preparation of hospital data.
