STOR-i Workshop on Prediction and Optimisation (POP2022)

Theme:

Analytics solutions typically involve two main tasks among others prediction and optimisation, now widely popularised as predictive and prescriptive analytics, but they are usually conducted separately. There is increasing demand for developing methodologies to explore efficient ways of combining these tasks. Recently, researchers have looked at the possibility of more integrated approaches. The theme of the workshop is to provide a platform for an exchange of ideas on such possibilities, raise awareness of recent developments, and stimulate discussion and collaboration.

Areas include but not limited to:

Methodological

  • Data-driven optimisation
  • Optimisation for machine learning and data science
  • Data science for optimisation
  • Forecasting for optimisation/optimising with forecasts

Applications of integration of forecasting and optimisation

  • Inventory planning
  • Pricing
  • Transportation
  • Production planning
