Conference Theme: Business Analytics and Optimization
Operations research applications have built on real data since the very beginning. With the recent ubiquitous availability of (big) data, operations research faces new opportunities and new challenges. How can we better exploit historical information to come up with better decisions that are more robust against data inaccuracies and uncertainties? What patterns and secrets do we discover in the data that may even help establishing new business models and new services? Business analytics and optimization will play key roles in turning data into insight and insight into best possible decisions.
The conference brings together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines like business, economics, mathematics, and computer science. The interdisciplinary setting fosters the exchange between predictive and prescriptive analytics, between academics and practitioners, and between the successful tradition and the promising future of our profession to attack urgent global challenges.
