DSI Conferences
The Decision Sciences Institute (DSI) sponsors international, national and regional conferences that are dedicated to advancing knowledge and improving instruction in all business and related disciplines.

DSI members receive program announcements and discounted fees to attend the annual meeting (usually held in the third week of November in a major U.S. city). The meetings draw over 1,500 professionals together to share current thoughts on theoretical and applied issues, as well as professional development topics. At the conferences, DSI acknowledges exceptional contributions to the decision sciences with several distinguished awards (see Recognition).

The 2014 Annual Meeting will be held in Tampa, Florida, at the Tampa Marriott Waterside, November 22-25. The theme for the conference is "Technology and Rapidly Changing Global Business Landscape," concerning how the heightened pace of technological innovation is driving change in business and business educational paradigms." What we take for granted now—Web 2.0, Twitter, Facebook, iPads and tablets, crowdsourcing, ecommerce, MOOCs, DNA sequencing, nanotechnology applications—existed only in the imagination of a few visionaries four decades ago. More details will be forthcoming in the coming months on the conference website:
