INFORMS 2018 Business Analytics Conference Announced
March 30, 2018

The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) has announced the 2018 Business Analytics Conference will be held on April 15-17, 2018, at the Baltimore Marriot Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland.

INFORMS Analytics Conference brings together 1,000 leading analytics professionals and industry experts (executives, analysts, managers, researchers, data scientists, modelers, etc.) to share ideas, network, and learn about the possibilities that can be generated by analytics.

A special session at the global conference on advanced analytics and data science will feature a presentation by Jennifer Priestley, Ph.D., Associate Dean of The Graduate College and the Director of the Analytics and Data Science Institute, Kennesaw State University. In her presentation, Four Things that Women in Data Science Can Learn from Game of Thrones, Ms. Priestley, one of the few female directors of a Ph.D. in Data Science, will provide perspective on how the discipline can attract (and retain) more female talent. These points will be framed through the popular HBO Series Game of Thrones to illustrate how strong female professionals can turn the tide and make valuable contributions to advance both the field and expand female representation.
