The mission of the Section on OR in Sports (SpORts) is to promote and disseminate research and applications among professionals interested in theory, methodologies, and applications of operations research and management science to sports problems.
The Section on OR in Sports will interact with many other INFORMS Sections/Societies, interweaving research from their areas to create new ideas for analysis of sports problems.
Sports Analytics Taxonomy Project
The Sports Analytics Taxonomy Project is an effort to capture as many uses and map the uses to the relevant sports topic areas. Analytics is applied over a wide range of performance, strategy, scheduling, and business areas. Displaying this in one diagram provides insight to these uses. If you would like to contribute to this effort, please contact Walt DeGrange.
