Call for Abstracts
The 26th European Conference on 
Operational Research (EURO 2013)
EURO-INFORMS Joint International Meeting
July 1-4, 2013 – Rome, Italy



Forecasting is at the heart of decision making in Operational Research (OR). It is the basis for planning and control activities, drives decision making of 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, the role of human judgement in forecasting and the scope for organisational learning, and research into information systems to support forecasting and planning. It is this plethora of methodological approaches and application areas that this EURO 2013 stream on Forecasting attempts to capture in a series of coherent special sessions, both from an academic and a practitioner perspective.
