This sounds interesting and I thought some of us might be looking for something baseball to do next Wednesday, July 11.
The Symposium on Statistics and Operations Research in Baseball will be a meeting of the baseball, industrial, and academic worlds.
The focus is on how Statistics and Operations Research methodology is used within baseball and associated businesses and on how baseball inspires the expansion of the frontiers of Statistics and Operations Research as scientific fields.
The Symposium will have a panel discussion moderated by Mike Siano of MLB.com's Baseball Channel in the morning, which will be edited for broadcast on MLB.com later in the week.
In the afternoon, there will be short seminars. After a brief introduction at 10, the panel will begin. An hour and a half break for lunch will follow the panel, at about 11:45. The Symposium is scheduled to end at 5.
