Learn how the latest research can improve people-related decision-making for your organization. The 2018 program of speaker sessions, panel discussions, and competitions provide a rich venue to connect with and learn from innovators across the industry.

Student Case Competition
Student teams apply a range of analytical techniques to solve a people-related challenge for a featured nonprofit organization. Teams receive real data from the organization and tackle the issue as they see fit. Last year, the Student Case Competition partnered with Teach for America.
Research Paper Competition
Highlights the latest research in people analytics from around the world. Last year more than 20 researchers submitted original, yet-unpublished papers on diverse topics, such as the dynamics of organizational culture, spatial management, and social contagion in organizations.
Provides a platform for emerging and promising entrepreneurial ventures in people analytics. With a pitch competition and expo format, selected startups are given the opportunity to demonstrate their products to conference attendees.
