Call for Papers: Data Envelopment Analysis and its Applications
OR61: Annual Conference, 3-5 September 2019, University of Kent, UK
Abstract submission: CLICK HERE
I would like to issue an invitation to take part in the Data Envelopment Analysis Stream of the OR61 Conference. This conference will be held in University of Kent, UK from 3rd to 5th September 2019. Contributions from both the academic and the non-academic communities are welcome.
This stream covers papers on the theme of efficiency and productivity analysis and performance management. Both parametric and non-parametric papers will be considered. We especially welcome papers on the theory, methodology and application of Data Envelopment Analysis and econometric methods in performance management. Of particular interest are successful applications of performance and efficiency analysis in the real world, for example in banking, healthcare, education, transportation, Energy, and so on.
If you are interested in making a presentation, please submit a title of your talk no later than 15th June 2019. See details at: at http://deazone.com/en/or61.
Deadline for submission abstract: June 30, 2019
The Centre for Efficiency and Productivity Analysis (CEPA) at the University of Queensland invites you to attend a two-day intensive course on Productivity and Efficiency Analysis Using R. The course will focus on measures of productivity and efficiency that are of practical relevance to policymakers. Unlike many courses in productivity and efficiency analysis, this course will teach participants how to measure productivity change in ways that are consistent with measurement theory. Participants will then learn how piecewise frontier models (PFMs), deterministic frontier models (DFMs) and stochastic frontier models (SFMs) can be used to explain variations in productivity. Finally, participants will get hands-on experience analyzing productivity change using R.
|Date:||Saturday 4 May – Sunday 5 May 2019|
|Time:||8.30am for a 9.00am start to 6.00pm|
|Location:||Room 113, Chamberlain Building (35) UQ St Lucia|
|Presenter:||Professor Chris O’Donnell|
|Cost:||$1000 (inc GST) standard fee. $600 (inc GST) full-time students. The cost includes lunches, refreshments and a copy of Professor O’Donnell’s new book, Productivity and Efficiency Analysis: An economic Approach to Measuring and Explaining Managerial Performance.|
I hope you can join us for this exciting course. Limited places are available, so you are advised to book early. Please forward this email to anyone you think might be interested. Any enquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
It is a pleasure to announce the 7th Workshop on efficiency and productivity analysis that will be held in Católica Porto Business School on the 13th of September 2019. Details on the workshop dates and call for abstracts can be found HERE.

|A basic knowledge of quantitative methods and statistics is desirable, but the course will refresh the participants’ prior knowledge as we go along. The course will emphasize actual applications in research and consultancy, and will l train the use of opens source softwares like R. Participants are expected to bring their own notebooks to benefit fully from the hands-on activities.|
|The aim of this course is to introduce the participants to the theory and practice of performance evaluations and their usages in research, policy analyses, incentive schemes and regulation.
Specifically, the objectives are
Background: Productivity and efficiency analysis is a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary field of research in economics, management sciences, and statistics. In addition to the empirical research on the magnitude, direction, and sources of productivity growth, this literature has produced quantitative methods such as data envelopment analysis (DEA) and stochastic frontier analysis (SFA), which have diffused beyond their traditional confinement to production settings. These tools are used in many different application areas including environment, development studies, education, finance, health care studies, natural resource management, public economics, and sports studies, among other fields. The tools and approaches of productivity analysis are equally well suited for micro-level analyses of firms and other decision-making units as well as macro-level cross-country comparisons. Integration with incentive theory, mechanism design and decision support systems makes the tools relevant also in normative applications

Big Data and Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA)
Big Data is a major source of change in today’s world. Organizations are constantly collecting data from various sources (e.g. loyalty cards, smart energy usage metres etc.), with the aim to use such data to improve their performance and create competitive advantage. DEA is a cutting-edge method for efficiency and productivity analysis, estimating maximum potential outcomes for given resource levels or minimum resource levels needed for given outcomes. You will join an internationally recognised faculty team for research in the theory and application in DEA and Econometrics. You will explore how Big Data can be exploited in the framework of DEA to improve organisational performance. Potential areas are the use of machine learning techniques such as clustering and segmentation in order to find sets of homogeneous units for DEA analysis or dealing with non standard data such as integer, interval, ordinal, ratio, imprecise, fuzzy or stochastic data in DEA modelling.
* Required skills: We are seeking candidates with a minimum 2:1 (or equivalent) honours degree in an area consistent with the theme or themes they wish to be considered for. An MSc degree will be an advantage as additional preparation for their chosen theme.
For further information please contact Professor Ali Emrouznejad (firstname.lastname@example.org)
How to Apply
Please send to email@example.com a cover letter explaining how you meet the EPSRC eligibility conditions for this award, attach a CV and attach a research proposal explaining for the research questions you would address, how you propose to address them and what contribution to knowledge you anticipate.
