The Sloan Sports Analytics Conference showcases cutting-edge research that is frequently featured in top media outlets throughout the world and has even changed the way sports are analyzed. The competition is an ideal way to build your reputation within the field of sports analytics.

This year’s competition will feature four sports tracks – Basketball, Baseball, Other Sports, and Business of Sports. In addition, all submissions that include code and data will be considered for the Best Open Source paper award.
