Hilton Mark Center
Chair:  Lieutenant Commander Matthew Powers
Co-Chair: CDR Ronald Cappellini

MORS will hold its Emerging Techniques Forum (ETF) at the Hilton Mark Center 4-5 December 2018.

The variety of topics, speakers, attendees, leaders, and distinguished guests will yet again be extensive. The meeting will be two days of unclassified technical presentations and discussions.

There will be two tracks, leading professionals in each track will share their theoretical and applied research of revolutions in analytical techniques and operations research methods. The topic tracks will be different than last years, by design. These tracks will include plenaries, networking events throughout, and a mid-career focus panel. The tracks are:

The Predictive Analytics track discusses various statistical techniques that analyze different forms of data to predict or forecast the future.  These techniques include data mining, machine learning, and modeling.

The Capability Analysis track discusses various techniques for analyzing or assessing whether an organization is able to meet emerging sets of challenging requirements.  These techniques may address challenges such as cyber security, wargaming, or other analytic approaches.
