Here are some good places to visit for research ideas, finding out what others have done and getting ideas for what you can do next.
Please consider sending your work to be posted here. As the site evolves, I hope to have blog and wiki areas to make it easy to get in touch with each other and share results.

Links to Meetings
Roanoke College hosted the Virginia Sports Analytics Meeting on September 16, 2017, and we take a large group of students to the excellent CSAM conferences at Furman University. The sports sessions at the annual Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) in early January are great. The Sloan Sports Analytics Conference is a star-studded event. Several other international meetings are recommended.
