    Advances in Decision Analysis Conference June 19-21 2019

    Start getting excited – we have one year to go!

    We are pleased to announce that the third Advances in Decision Analysis Conference organized by the Decision Analysis Society of INFORMS, will be held on 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 on the conference website in the fall of 2018.

    We are excited about our keynote speakers: Robyn S. Wilson from Ohio State University and Massimo Marinacci from Bocconi University. The conference will be hosted at Bocconi University in Milan and supported by the IGIER and BIDSA research centres of Bocconi University.  

    Book your hotels as early as possible, as hotels in Italy in June fill up quickly! For a list of hotels in the Bocconi vicinity, see details at

    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!
