Canucks Army is excited to announce we'll be co-hosting the 2017 Vancouver Hockey Analytics conference with the Vancouver Canucks, Hockey Graphs and Hockey Data.
This event follows in the footsteps of last year's event, a smashing success held at the Harbour Centre. The Vancouver Canucks have stepped forward this year to help host the event and have even volunteered Rogers Arena as a location.
The Vancouver Hockey Analytics Conference, or VanHac for short, is the largest of its type on the West Coast. The event aims to provide a platform for members of the hockey community to share ideas and collaborate on a variety of topics related to hockey analytics.
This platform also offers an increased level of visibility for the analysts who ply their trade in this field, whether they're developers, organizations or businesses within the community.
You can find information about the event here:
Date: Saturday, March 11th, 2017
Location: Rogers Arena, Vancouver, Canada
The call for speakers is currently open with a deadline of January 10th, 2017. See the website for more details or go here to submit your submission.
The plan as of now is to cap the amount of participants at 100 individuals. If you're interested in attending the event, I recommend following the link above, as it will be updated as more information is made available.
