Outstanding Post-Conference Workshops

Predictive Analytics World for Government, September 18-19, (pre & post conference workshops on the 17th, 20th, & 21st) in Washington DC, is a practically-focused, vendor neutral conference that highlights case studies and emerging trends of how government agencies are currently using data analytics to solve real world problems. 

This fall, come experience everything that PAW Government has to offer and sign up for the post-conference workshops, the perfect end to an incredible week. First, experience The Deadly Dozen: Top 12 Analytics Mistakes and the Techniques to Defeat Them with John Elder, Founder & Chair at Elder Research on Thursday, September 20. Then, on Friday, September 21st, wrap up your week with Carl Hoover learning Data Science for Managers.

In this workshop, renowned practitioner and hugely popular instructor Dr. John Elder will survey the most advanced analytics tools in the practitioner’s toolkit, with particular emphasis on resampling tools – such as cross-validation and target shuffling (a method to avert p-hacking devised by Dr. Elder) – which reveal the true accuracy of your models.

Workshop topics also include visualization, feature engineering, global optimization, criteria of merit design, ensembles, and “soft” factors that affect success, such as human cognitive biases. Attendees will also leave with an understanding of the inner workings of the most popular algorithms – including regression, decision trees, nearest neighbors, neural networks, bagging, boosting, and random forests.

Throughout the workshop day, Dr. Elder will share his (often humorous) stories from real-world applications, illuminating the technical material covered.


This 1-day workshop with Carl Hoover is an introduction to data science for executives and managers of data science programs. It provides a high-level overview of modern data science concepts, tools, and techniques from a management perspective. All stages of the data science lifecycle will be discussed in the context of agile management methodologies using real-world case studies.

Managers will learn how to identify skilled data scientists and build data science teams that use sound scientific methods to meet their organization’s objectives. Leaders will learn to ask the right questions, solve the right problems, keep data science projects on track, ensure their solutions are deployed and avoid common pitfalls along the way. Both technical and non-technical participants will benefit from this workshop and be equipped with the knowledge necessary to lead effective data science programs in their organizations.


Get the most bang for your buck when you end your week at Predictive Analytics World for Government with these two can't-miss workshops. Plus, when you register now you could save big.
