“Agriculture Analytics” track at the INFORMS 2017 Annual Meeting

Comments Off

Ag Analytics” track at the upcoming 2017 INFORMS Annual Meeting in Houston is organised by Robin Lougee. Unfortunately, the submissions deadline has past but it might be of interest to our community.  It’s a challenge for the track to get people who aren’t traditional INFORMS members from the larger agriculture analytics community to pay for themselves to attend - but they have got people from CGIAR, Raj Khosla (precision Ag, Colorado State University), and others lined up.
