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.

The conference will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 25 and 26, 2018, on Purdue University’s campus in West Lafayette, Indiana.  Social activities will include a welcome reception in the evening of the 24th and a conference dinner on the 25th.  Continental breakfasts and lunches will be provided on the 25th and 26th.  The conference will end by 3 pm on the 26th so that participants can return home that evening.
