Emerging Techniques Forum: Delivering the Defense analytic community with extensive content on emerging analytic topics and techniques. Participants will have opportunities to directly engage with a constellation of speakers, leaders, and distinguished guests. The meeting will be two days of unclassified technical presentations and discussions, in which leading professionals will share their theoretical and applied research of revolutions in analytical techniques and operations research methods.
There will be two new tracks this year. Each will include plenaries, and networking events throughout. The tracks are described below.
The Computational Advances in Analytics track addresses advances in the analytic community as it expands tools and techniques that leverage increased computing power and data availability. These advances will enable the operations research analyst to generate more thorough, timely, and tractable analysis in support of National Defense.
The Decision Analysis track addresses leading edge analytic techniques used to support senior leader decision making. By harnessing these techniques, military operations analysts will be best prepared to equally handle both quantitative and qualitative data in pursuit of generating analytically informed decisions.
