Lunchalytics’ grew out of the Canadian Operational Research Society, which hosted analytical speakers from time to time.

The events moved to lunchtime, grew in popularity, and lunchalytics was born.


Lunchalytics aims to increase awareness and understanding of the power of analytics to aid decision-making.  It provides a forum to share cool and interesting work and to connect producers, consumers, and academics in the field.

In short, Lunchalytics wants to help build the analytics community.
