MAPD 2022 - Meeting of Analytics Program Directors

  • 1.  MAPD 2022 - Meeting of Analytics Program Directors

    Posted 01-24-2022 13:54

    We are excited to announce that registration for MAPD 2022 is open!  Information on the meeting, including the agenda and the registration form can be found here:

    This year, we will be discussing how analytics programs have evolved since the first programs launched in 2007. We will discuss what has changed, what needs to change, and how we should be thinking about change. We will be addressing a wide range of questions that we all face – what skills do our students need to be successful after graduation? How should we be thinking about ethics and fairness in machine learning? What is the best way to engage in an interdisciplinary environment? What does a dissertation or thesis in analytics/data science look like? How do we navigate issues related to intellectual property and confidentiality when collaborating with the private sector?

    If you only attend one conference in 2022, this will be the one you should attend! The meeting will be laser focused on the issues that are relevant to you and your program.

    As always if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly (
