I am currently involved in helping set up the 4th SCOR (Student Conference on Operational Research) conference (www.scor14.com) to be held at the University of Nottinham in the first May bank holiday of next year (2nd-4th May 2014). The conference is aimed at PhD students and young practitioners at the start of their careers and covers a wide range of topics and streams.
As one of which I am chairing a Big Data & Analytics stream and would welcome abstracts from anyone interested in presenting on a wide range of topics across the analytics specturm including:
- Big Data applications
- Predictive analytics
- Machine learning
- Data science
- High-performance computing
- Text analytics & natural language processing
- Any presentations exploring theoretical or practical examples of how OR/MS and analytics can be linked
As a student conference the rates are being kept particualrly low, provisionally estimated at £125 per person, including 2 nights accommodation, all meals, social events, printed materials and the opportunity to be published in the conference proceedings.
For members of the Analytics Network we are aiming to deliver a live video stream of the event and/or a downloadable video recording of the presentations. More details to follow.
In the meanwhile for anyone interested please check out the conference website (www.scor14.com) or am happy to give out any information or answer any questions by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Hope to see you there!
