The Sloan Sports Analytics Conference is pleased to announce the call for abstracts for the 2018 Research Papers Competition. The conference showcases cutting-edge research that in past years has been featured in top media outlets and even changed the way sports are analyzed. We would especially cherish the opportunity to highlight some of best work going on in the world of football analytics. In addition to presenting at the conference, the researchers with the top football paper will also be given the opportunity to share their insights here on Football Outsiders.
The deadline for submitting your abstract online here is September 28, 2018. Authors of top abstracts that are judged to be “new, true, and important” will be invited to submit a full manuscript. Please refer to the Research Papers page for full details on the submission and evaluation page.
