Welcome to this year’s MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference blog!

As always, we’ll be sharing the latest in cutting-edge analytics, insightful research, and behind-the-scenes perspective about the conference. Experts will provide insights on a range of topics, including: player analysis, big data and advanced analytics, and updates on panels and new panelists. If you have an idea you’d like to share on the blog, please contact us at blog@sloansportsconference.com

Planning is well underway for this year’s conference. Over the past few months we begun lining up an impressive slate of panelists and will be announcing many more soon, had our noses buried in books looking for the perfect reading material for our gift bags, and evaluated a record number of research paper abstracts.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Boston in late February!
