Fellow Researchers & Practitioners in Forecasting!

We invite you to submit an abstract and present you research at the stream on Forecasting at the forthcoming EURO XXV 2012, the 25th European Conference on Operational Research, held from 8 to 11 July 2012 n Vilnius, Lithuania!

Forecasting is at the heart of decision making in OR. It is the basis for planning and control activities, it drives decision making on products and services, from the strategic to the operational level, and is a critical input to finance, marketing, logistics and production, across sectors from business to government. This stream attempts to capture the plethora of methodological approaches and application areas in a series of coherent special sessions, relevant both from an academic and a practitioner perspective.

Topics include, but are not limited to the following application areas and methodological approaches:

Econometric Forecasting Financial Forecasting and Risk Analysis Forecasting and Planning Systems Forecasting Electricity Load and Prices Forecasting for Logistics and Supply Chain Management Forecasting for Workforce Management Forecasting Processes Forecasting with Neural Networks Forecasting Support Systems Hierarchical Forecasting Systems Integration of System Dynamics and Forecasting Models Intermittent Demand Forecasting (Forecasting of Count Series) Inventory Forecasting Judgemental Forecasting Knowledge Sharing and Organisational Learning Performance Measurement
