Before I go into the details of this event, please realize that it is completely sold out.  They do have a waiting list, which you can place your name onto, if you are so interested.  The only option on the waiting list is to register as a non-student for $200 (again, only if you are selected off of the waiting list).

What: 2010 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference

When: Saturday, March 06, 2010 (7:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.)

Conference Goal: To provide a forum to discuss the increasing role of analytics in the sports industry.


This Conference has one of, if not the, richest group of panelists that I have ever seen at an event.  If you do have a chance to make it off of the waiting list, the $200 may be well worth it.
