    The 10th Annual Symposium on Statistical Challenges in eCommerce Research (SCECR) was held in Tel Aviv, Israel on June 12-13, 2014 and was organized by Gal Oerstreicher -Singer and Tomer Geva from Tel Aviv University, Inbal Yahav-Shenberger from Bar Ilan University, and Galit Shmueli from the Indian School of Business. With many high-quality submissions, the two-day program included 14 sessions and had two parallel tracks. Attendees presented work on current empirical research topics in IS and related fields with an emphasis on statistical issues and challenges. The symposium brought together over 50 attendees, with 34 paper presentations and 8 poster presentations. Presenters came from around the globe: Europe, Asia, and North America, and included academic faculty, post-docs, PhD students and industry professionals.
    Research topics were diverse, bringing together researchers in IS, Marketing, Machine Learning and Statistics. The session titles reflect this diversity: Online Markets, Love and Hate, Social TV and Social Media, Labor Markets, Online Communities, Healthcare, Social Influence, Mobile and Telecom, Experiments and Field Studies, and methodological sessions on Text Mining, Machine Learning and Statistical Methods, and Big Data Analysis. Extended abstracts can be found on  We had a fantastic hands-on tutorial on Text Mining by Prof. Shawndra Hill from Wharton.

  • About TEIS:
    The TEIS workshop is designed to provide a community for researchers who use analytical modeling techniques in the area of economics of information systems. Although a number of workshops and conferences accept research based on analytical models, these tend to be diffused with inadequate time for presentation, discussion and Q&A. TEIS workshop complements such venues by providing a focused and intense environment for interaction among researchers to assist in the development of the field and help advance shared understanding about various aspects of modeling research. TEIS workshops have a single track with one hour per paper so everyone can participate substantively in the discussion.

  • TEIS 2015 was hosted in Banff, Canada on March 13-16, 2015 at The Fairmont Banff Springs.
  • ISS was one of the sponsors for TEIS 2015.
