Looking forward to the INFORMS Analytics Conference in Vegas

Stefan Karisch

Another exciting INFORMS Conference on Business Analytics & Operations Research is fast approaching. Set for April 2-4 in Las Vegas, the conference promises to be a great venue to meet other practitioners and to hear carefully selected speakers and competition finalists describe analytics in action.

The conference organizing committee is assembling an outstanding program focused on analytics practice. Speakers will be given ample time (50 minutes) to delve deeply into their topics, enabling listeners to think about take-home ideas to further explore in their organization. The conference also offers plenty of networking opportunities, which I have found particularly valuable and that have helped me build long-lasting professional (and personal) relationships.

The Analytics Society is also organizing several events for the conference, including:

  • A breakfast to honor finalists for the Caterpillar and INFORMS Analytics Society Innovative;
  • Applications in Analytics Award (IAAA), the SAS and INFORMS Analytics Society Student Analytical Scholar Competition and the Syngenta Crop Challenge;
  • Finalist presentations for IAAA and the Syngenta Crop Challenge and posters by the Student Analytical Scholar winner;
  • The INFORMS Professional Colloquium to help practice-oriented graduate students transition into successful real-world careers; and
  • Numerous sponsored sessions providing valuable lessons from actual analytics case studies.

If you haven’t experienced the INFORMS analytics conference, I suggest that you see the value for yourself this year. The Analytics Society officers and I are looking forward to seeing you in Las Vegas.
