MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference

The MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference is going on this weekend. It looks fascination, wish I was there. They have a great website and are livestreaming panels. Here is a round-up of Day 1.

They have a research paper competition with finalists posted online. My favorite has to do with (what else) decision making, and specifically the choices made by NBA teams in trading off 2-point and three-point shots as a function of context - whether in a winning or losing position. That paper can be found here (in PDF) and the other finalists are here.

You can follow the conference on Twitter at #SSAC13.
