Lancaster Centre for Forecasting and Cardiff Business School, in collaboration with the IIF and SAS, are hosting a workshop on “Supply Chain Forecasting for Operations” on 28 and 29 June 2016 at Lancaster University, UK. The workshop is intended to stimulate forecasting research in the area of supply chain operations and selected papers will be reviewed for publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Forecasting.
If you are interested in presenting a paper at the workshop, please send an abstract for consideration to John Boylan (firstname.lastname@example.org). The workshop is intended to accommodate around 30-35 people and will be by invitation, so we can ensure that a suitable range of topics are included in the programme. There will be limited funds to support attendance, particularly doctoral students. We hope this event will help to generate new research in an a critically important area that has not had the attention it deserves since the days of Bob Brown and Charles Holt!
