The analytics conference will include 13 unique presentations covering the latest research and achievements in topics of great importance in the analytics community, including ethics in data, decision and risk analysis, revenue management & pricing, machine learning, and marketing analytics, along with the role of analytics in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join us for the first virtual INFORMS Business Analytics Conference


Bill Franks Plenary Speaker for virtual Analytics ConferenceBill Franks, Chief Analytics Officer for The International Institute for Analytics (IIA) will present on

The Ethics of Analytics

As more and more data is being collected, concerns are constantly being raised about what data is appropriate to collect and how (or if) it should be analyzed. There are many ethical, privacy, and legal issues to consider and no clear standards exist in many cases as to is fair and what is foul. This means that organizations must consider their own principles and risk tolerance in order to implement the right policies.


We will have a community on INFORMS Connect to meet fellow analytics professionals. Use the discussion feature to ask attendees your most pressing analytics questions. The slides from the presentations will also be located in the library of the group for your access.


When you are filling out the registration form, you may select any of the 13 events. You will receive a confirmation email from both INFORMS and a series of emails from Zoom with a link to each individual presentation.
