                           EURO XXV 2012
          The 25th European Conference on Operatinal Research

               Special Session Stream on Forecasting


Forecasting is at the heart of decision making in Operational Research (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. Traditionally, OR improvements to Forecasting have been algorithmic, and work in this area continues to flourish. However, more recently, OR work has broadened to include whole system planning and a re-discovery of the role of System Thinking/Dynamics. There has been increased interest, too, in the role of human judgement in forecasting and the scope for organisational learning. Related research into information systems to support forecasting and planning is also becoming increasingly important. It is this plethora of methodological approaches and application areas that this EURO 2012 stream on Forecasting attempts to capture in a series!
  of coherent special sessions, relevant both from an academic and a practitioner perspective.
