Analytics are now a well established multidimensional field of study and an area of application which has attracted much interest in recent years. It has been successful in many ways and is now a subject of academic study in Computer Science, Information Management, Knowledge Management, Intellectual Capital, Investment Analysis, and Corporate Strategy to mention only a few areas.

The International Conference on Analytics Driven Solutions seeks to establish a platform where both academic and professional approaches to this rapidly expanding field of activity can be explored. Drawing on best practice in analytics we invite academics, practitioners and research students to come together and share examples, cases, theories and experiences in the field.

We look forward to welcoming you to Canada, the federal capital Ottawa and to the University of Ottawa
