Announcing the first Advances in Decision Analysis Conference
Washington DC, 16-18 June, 2014

We are pleased to announce Advances in Decision Analysis, the first stand-alone conference organized by the Decision Analysis Society. The conference will be held June 16-18, 2014, hosted by the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University.

This research-focused conference will strengthen and broaden the decision analysis community. The conference aims to promote the development of a ody of work fit for the Decision Analysis Journal and the Decision Analysis areas in Management Science and Operations Research. The conference will provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussions, including researchers in statistics, economics, psychology, and other decision-making related disciplines with a prescriptive focus.

We are pleased to announce that Professor Bob Winkler of the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University will offer the opening plenary.

Details on additional speakers, extended abstract submission and registration will be available soon on the conference website:
