Decision Analysis Affinity Group (DAAG) 2010

Freeman Marvin, Don Buckshaw, and Russ Mosier attended the 2010 DAAG Conference, held in Orlando, Florida, on April 21-22following the INFORMS Practice Conference.  DAAG is an international society dedicated to exploring and sharing best practices among decision analysis professionals.  The keynote speakers were two of the founders of decision analysis: Howard Raiffa, who sent a video presentation because he was not able to travel, and Ron Howard (pictured above with Freeman, Russ, and Don). Howard Raiffa's  topic was on the future of decision science called "Whither Decision Science?"  IDI was well represented in the Government and Military session, and both Freeman and Don made presentations.  Greg Parnell was instrumental in setting up the session agenda, but he was unable to attend.
