INFORMS Business Analytics 2018


Baltimore, 15-17 Apr 2018; Deadline 11 Jan

Since 1729, Baltimore has served as a vital hub of discovery and growth in Maryland. Located within an easy distance of both Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., Baltimore – birthplace of the U.S. National Anthem – is among those cities that played a defining role in the founding of the United States. Since then “Charm City,” as Baltimore is appropriately nicknamed, has grown from a bustling port city, to an industrial center, to a community focused on service, and the current home of INFORMS.

We invite you to join us on April 15-17, 2018 in the hometown of INFORMS at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel for the annual INFORMS Business Analytics Conference. Interact with and learn from leading analytics professionals and industry experts to gain real-world insights on successful analytics strategy. From technical workshops, to over 150 talks and presentations on ground-breaking analytics applications, to learning how to better communicate the value of O.R. and analytics, the 2018 conference offers valuable insight to all members of the O.R. and analytics communities.

We look forward to welcoming you home in 2018!

Deadline for submission is Thursday, January 11, 2018.

You are invited to submit a proposal to present at the 2018 INFORMS Conference on Business Analytics and O.R. Speakers selected through this process receive a discount off regular registration rates.

We welcome proposals in all areas and all topics within the business analytics and O.R. arena. We encourage you to submit a proposal for review by the Selection Committee. Both presentation content and speaking expertise will be considered in selection, with priority given to real-world business topics and high-quality academic work geared to real situations.
