This inaugural conference on Data Science for Business and Economics is hosted by the Business Information and Analytics Center (BIAC) at Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management.

The program will include several paper sessions, a poster session, and a panel discussion on emerging issues in data science. Each paper session will begin with a talk by a distinguished keynote speaker.
