Special Session Stream Organisers

Fellow Forecasters!

We have the pleasure of co-chairing the forecasting  stream of special sessions to be held at EURO INFORMS 2013 conference.

We would like to personally invite you, both researchers and practitioners, to propose a special session to be organised within this stream - on any particular forecasting related topic you are interested in - or to present a paper in one of the accepted special sessions or in the general session on Forecasting.

We look forward to seeing you in Rome!

Professor Robert Fildes
Distinguished Professor in Management Science

Robert Fildes is Distinguished Professor of Management Science in the School of Management, Lancaster University and Director of the Lancaster Centre for Forecasting. He was co-founder in 1981 of the Journal of Forecasting and in l985 of the International Journal of Forecasting. He has consulted and lectured widely on all aspects of the problem of improving forecasting in organisations. His major concern is that despite all the research companies still stay with old-fashioned systems and methods. The solution, he thinks, is better designed forecasting systems and better trained forecasters.
