1.  Nominations now being accepted for Early Career Professionals' Network (ECPN) event

Posted 17 days ago

Nominations are now being accepted for graduate students or recent graduates seeking industry positions to attend the Early Career Professionals' Network (ECPN) event to be held Sunday, April 15, 2018 during the INFORMS Business Analytics Conference in Baltimore.  ECPN combines the former INFORMS Professional Colloquium (IPC) and Early Career Connections (ECC) events. The ECPN event is a full-day workshop within the conference that consists of talks, panel discussions, and role play sessions organized by analytics leaders and practitioners from diverse industry segments. This event presents the perspective of experienced practitioners who have bridged the gap from academia to industry and is designed to give attendees (who are either early in their career or soon to graduate) a jump-start with their analytics careers.

Please nominate graduate students or recent graduates (Master's or Ph.D.) who might benefit from this event.  Nominations must include a letter of recommendation from a university advisor or employment supervisor.

Nominations are due by Wednesday, February 28, 2018.  Those selected to attend (who will receive reduced price admission to the conference and potential financial aid based on sponsorship levels) will be notified on Wednesday, March 8, 2018.

 For more information and to submit a nomination, visit http://meetings2.informs.org/wordpress/analytics2018/ecpn/.  Direct questions to ecpn@mail.informs.org.
