2015 Annual Meeting Proceedings and Program

  46th Annual Meeting

The theme for this year’s conference is Decision Sciences in the 21st Century: Theoretical Impact and Practical Relevance.   We have two program pillars: (1) research and (2) education/professional development. This year we are introducing some new tracks as well as retaining many of the ones that were well received last year. The new tracks include Supply Chain Flexibility, Agility, Resilience and Strategic Management.  We also have several special focus tracks:  Healthcare Management, Ethics, Hospitality Management and Marketing, Public Policy, and Entrepreneurship.

We ask that you save the dates of our conference, November 21-24, 2015 and stay tuned for updates on exciting networking events and other relevant issues that we will keep you posted on.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the DSI 2015 Annual Meeting in Seattle!
