Advances in Decision Analysis 2019

We are pleased to announce Advances in Decision Analysis 2019, a conference organized by the Decision Analysis Society of INFORMS. This conference—the third of its kind—will be held June 19-21, 2019 at Bocconi University, Milan, Italy.

The conference aims to bring together scientists working in decision analysis, broadly defined. The conference will provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussions and will include talks by researchers in decision analysis, behavioral economics, judgment and decision-making, machine learning, statistics, and other related disciplines with a prescriptive focus.

Details on extended abstract submission and registration will be available in the Fall of 2018.

The conference will be hosted at Bocconi University in Milan and supported by the IGIER and BIDSA research centres of Bocconi University. Bocconi University was established as a private, independent, non-profit university in 1902, and was the first Italian institution of higher education to grant a degree in economics. Today, Bocconi is internationally renowned as a point of reference in teaching and research in the fields of economics and business with a world-class faculty and a diverse student population.

Milan is a cosmopolitan and modern city that combines the best of Italy’s past and present, while keeping a sharp eye on the future. Due to its geographical position in the North of Italy, it represents a gateway to Europe and is close to a multitude of other interesting Italian cities and attractions. It is rich in art, history and culture, such as the world-renowned La Scala opera house, the huge gothic Cathedral Duomo, the medieval Castello Sforzesco and Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper.

We hope you will join us at the Advances in Decision Analysis 2019 Conference to enjoy the research talks and take in the sights of the wonderful city of Milan!
