Data Science. Optimization. Collaboration.
The University of California, Berkeley welcomes you to join Bay Area schools in the 2nd Annual Bay Area Decision Sciences Summit hosted by the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE). Teams of interdisciplinary students will derive insights from a real-word data set and present findings to IEOR professors. There will be beginner workshops hosted by UC Berkeley's Data Science Society (DSS) introducing a popular data analytics tool called Jupyter Notebook. 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 Wednesday, March 13th 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.
