Data Science. Optimization. Collaboration.
The University of California, Berkeley welcomes you to join Bay Area schools in the 3rd Bay Area Decision Sciences Summit hosted by the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) at UC Berkeley and the Decision Sciences Student Association (DSSA) at SFSU. Teams of interdisciplinary students will derive insights from a real-world data set and present findings to IEOR professors. There will also be workshops introducing several common data science tools.
Food will be provided.
NOTE: Space is limited to 40 students so you must register for the event in advance. Register on our website by 11:59 PM Monday, April 3rd to reserve your spot. We will email all registered students to confirm attendance. Teams will be formed on the day of the event.

Sometimes you can learn more by collaborating with others outside the classroom than you can learn inside of it.
That was what San Francisco State University (SFSU) College of Business dean, Linda Oubre, told students to kick off the first ever Bay Area Decision Sciences Summit (BADSS), an event organized by undergraduate students and faculty from the University of California at Berkeley, San Jose State University (SJSU), Santa Clara University (SCU), and SFSU.
Often regarded as the ‘combustion engine-like revolution’ of the 21st century, data analytics is on a rapid rise in today’s world. Realizing this, members of UC Berkeley’s Institute for Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) took the onus on themselves to host the second Bay Area Decision Sciences Summit (BADSS) on March 16th, 2019.
Much like the summit last year, the objective was to assemble a large community of aspiring students and established faculty passionate about the field of decision sciences.
