[DMANET] Workshop on Prediction and Optimisation

Workshop on Prediction and Optimisation
Lancaster University, UK, 16th-17th June 2022
(Online-only participation also possible.)

Analytics solutions typically involve both prediction and optimisation (aka predictive and prescriptive analytics), but they are often conducted separately. Recently, researchers have looked at the possibility of more integrated approaches. This workshop aims to raise awareness of recent developments in this area, and stimulate discussion and collaboration.

There will be a single stream of talks, rather than parallel sessions. We welcome submissions on any topic related the theme, but especially welcome submissions on data-driven optimisation; optimisation for machine learning and data science; data science for optimisation; forecasting for optimisation/optimising with forecasts; or applications to real-life problems.

Abstracts must be submitted by 22nd April 2022 by email to Submissions must be no more than 1 page and in plain text.

Cost: £100 for physical attendance, £30 for online attendance.

Important dates:
Abstract submission deadline: 22nd of April 2022.
Registration deadline: 6th of May 2022.
Workshop: 16th and 17th of June 2022.
