    We are back in person! But you can just as easily join the fun remotely :) 

    The Chicago (Midwest) Chapter of INFORMS is holding a hybrid Regional Analytics Conference (in person with livestreaming on Day 1, Thursday, December 1, and fully virtual Day 2 on, Friday, December 2). We've spent the past two years delivering virtual conferences, so we are especially grateful to be able to put on a conference where we can say "hello" to one another in person. Thanks to our sponsors: DePaul University (Department of Management and Entrepreneurship), Enova, and the INFORMS Analytics Society for helping to make this conference a reality.

    We have an amazing lineup of speakers and panelists.
    Join us to learn about:  

    • How to design, build, manage and grow a world-class analytics organization (keynote)
    • Saving local news with big data, lifetime value models and causal inference (keynote)
    • Best practices when there are no practices: What to do when the data doesn't exist
    • Analytics-based enterprise performance management (EPM)
    • And more!

    Hi Chris,

    It is great to know that IRAC will offer both in-person and online options. For people in the Midwest and who can travel to Chicago, this will be an amazing experience. Could you share more details about Day 1? I look forward to attending this conference!

    Hi Ziteng - 
    We have a great lineup for Day 1, 
    being both live-streamed and hosted in downtown Chicago at Depaul's campus. 

    The Day 1 keynote speaker is John K. Thompson, an international technology executive with more than 35 years of experience in the fields of data, advanced analytics and AI. He has authored several best-selling books in analytics and is currently responsible for the global advanced analytics and AI function at a leading biopharmaceutical company. We also have Rhiannon Clifton and Len Musielak, Senior Directors with SHIELD Illinois leading a presentation on
    Best Practices When There are No Practices: What to Do When the Data Doesn't Exist. In addition to those wonderful speakers, we have an award ceremony (our IMPACTFUL Analytics Award, handed out annually to those students, academia, and practitioners that are using analytics to better our world).

    In addition to our speakers, we also have a long-lost live networking event at the end of the day! We're very much looking forward to connecting with Chapter members and finding great local minds to collaborate with. 

    You can find an agenda (and registration) at: https://meetings.informs.org/wordpress/regional-analytics-midwest2022/agenda/

    See you there!
