Lancaster Centre for Forecasting hosted the 19th IIF Workshop on Supply Chain Forecasting for Operations on 28th and 29th of June, jointly sponsored by the IIF and the software company SAS. The event attracted an international gathering of researchers and practitioners with presentations covering supply chain risk mitigation, temporal and cross-sectional aggregation, structural models, forecast integration, uncertainty and evaluation.
The presentation slides are available at http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/lums/scfo/proceedings/
There was a single stream and each speaker was allocated 35 minutes, including a generous time for comments from a discussant and questions from participants. The feedback on the workshop was very positive, with requests to organise such events more often.
