We are pleased to announce Advances in Decision Analysis 2017, a conference organized by the Decision Analysis Society. This conference-the second of its kind-will be held June 26-27, 2017 at The University of Texas at Austin in Austin, Texas.
The conference aims to develop and promote work fit for the Decision Analysis areas in Management Science and Operations Research and the Decision Analysis journal. The conference will provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussions and will include talks by researchers in statistics, economics, psychology, and other decision-making related disciplines with a prescriptive focus.
We are also pleased to announce that Professor Jim Dyer of the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin will offer the opening plenary. A second plenary talk will be given by Bill Klimack of Chevron.
Details on abstract submission and registration are available on the conference site. (See the links on the lower left of the page.)
