2018 Conference on Data Science for Business and Economics
This inaugural conference on Data Science for Business and Economics is hosted by the Business Information and Analytics Center (BIAC) at Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management. The conference will feature interdisciplinary speakers from business, economics, computer science, statistics, and other areas, as they explore the use of data science to solve real-world problems. We encourage talks that push the frontier of our understanding and/or help tame the complexity of data analyses for business decision making via theoretical and empirical studies or foundational discoveries. The program will include several paper sessions, a poster session, and a panel discussion on emerging issues in data science. Each paper session will begin with a talk by a distinguished keynote speaker.
