Message from the Chair

Welcome to NEDSI 2023!

52nd Annual Conference of Northeast Decision Sciences Institute

On behalf of the entire NEDSI Board and Organizing Committee, we would like to welcome you to the 52nd Annual Conference of NEDSI. The theme of the conference is “Risk, Resilience and Recovery in Turbulent Business Environments.” Through the efforts of numerous scholars, thought leaders, and generous volunteers, we are excited to offer you once again a variety of paper sessions, workshops, panels, and consortia that we hope will engage you in professional development and networking opportunities.

The board and organizing committee will be working very hard in the course of next few months to pull together a great 2023 conference. In addition to our sincere gratitude to the entire NEDSI board, we are very grateful to Dr. Mo Sepehri, Dean – School of Business and Public Administration (SBPA) at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), without whom it would not have been possible to host the conference in Washington DC. SBPA-UDC is the host institute for NEDSI 2023.

The venue for NEDSI 2023 is the nation’s capital, Washington DC. The conference hotel is Crystal Gateway Marriott located in Arlington, VA, just across the district line and close to all the Washington DC attractions including Smithsonian Museums, White House, Washington Monument, Capitol Hill, National Mall, and many more! All attractions are easily accessible via Crytal City Metro station which is connected from the hotel lobby. There is a special conference group rate for room reservations made by March 1, 2023.
