Most of the sessions and papers I typically like are in the area of Statistics and Data Analysis or Data Mining and Text Analytics. These sessions and papers offer direct applications in SAS that I can immediately take back to my job and implement. There are often other papers throughout Pharma, Operations Research, and Financial Services that also can be really helpful.
Below are the titles and links to papers that I've found so far. Yes this seems like a lot, but its only a small portion of the total proceedings. There are tons of other sections related to business intelligence, data management, and programming. I'm not sure I'll fit all of the sessions I've found into a 3.5 day conference schedule.
