About Decision Sciences

The Decision Sciences Institute (DSI) is a professional organization of academicians and practitioners interested in the application of quantitative and behavioral methods to the problems of society.

Through national, international, and regional conferences; competitions; and publications, the Institute provides an international forum for presenting and sharing research in the study of decision processes across disciplines. The Institute also plays a vital role in the academic community by offering professional development activities and job placement services.

Five regional subdivisions in the United States, as well as regions representing Europe, Mexico, Asia-Pacific and the Indian subcontinent, operate independently within the Institute (see regions). Each region has its own elected officers and representative on the board of directors and holds annual meetings.

The Institute, an independent non-profit educational organization, is located in Houston, Texas, where it receives extensive support from the C.T. Bauer: College of Business | University of Houston.
