Dear Colleagues,
We cordially invite you to participate in the special track on ” AI for Sustainable Performance Analytics” as part of the 7th International Conference of Entrepreneurship for Sustainability & Impact (ESI). This conference will be held in Doha, Qatar, from November 23rd to 26th 2024. We welcome contributions from both academic and non-academic communities.

The “AI for Sustainable Performance Analytics” track encourages collaboration among researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to explore innovative approaches at the intersection of AI and sustainability analytics, emphasizing Performance Analytics. We invite contributions across theoretical frameworks, methodological advancements, case studies, and practical applications in areas like energy management, supply chain optimization, and environmental monitoring. Join us in shaping the conversation on leveraging AI for sustainable performance analytics, driving positive change towards a more resilient and environmentally conscious future.

We are especially interested in contributions that explore the integration of AI with mathematical modelling, including Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), Best Worth Model (BWM), Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), machine learning algorithms, sustainability principles, decision-making unit performance, big data analytics, comprehensive sustainability assessments, synergy, practical case studies, and achieving sustainable outcomes.

Please ensure that your submissions adhere to the conference guidelines and formatting instructions provided on the conference website.

The conference will be recognizing outstanding contributions with the following awards:
Best Paper Awards: the winner will be awarded the sum of $1,500 and the runner-up will be awarded $1,000.
Best Case Study Awards: the winner will be awarded the sum of $1,500 and the runner-up will be awarded $1,000.
Outstanding PhD Dissertation-Based Paper Award: the winner will be awarded the sum of $1,000.
Best Master/MBA-Dissertation Based Paper Awards: the winner will be awarded the sum of $1,000.
