Robert Fildes asked me to prepare a review of exponential smoothing for OR60. I thought that it would be boring just to look in the past, so I decided to do past + present + future, adding a model that Nikos and I have started working on some time ago (GUM – Generalised Univariate Model). […]

# International Symposium on Forecasting 2018

This year I have presented an extension of the research from ISF2017, called “Forecasting intermittent data with complex patterns”. This time we developed the model with “logistic probability”, which allows capturing complex patterns in demand occurrence part of the data. I also tried making the presentation more entertaining and easier to understand by a wider […]

# Conferences 2018

Next year I’m going to attend several forecasting-related conferences. I’ve decided to make a list in order not to forget what to attend. Here it is: International Symposium on Forecasting, 17-20 June, 2018, Boulder, Colorado, USA. This is the key event in forecasting, which any self-respecting forecaster should not miss. I don’t know what to […]

# International Symposium on Forecasting 2017

In Cairns, Australia, I have presented the topic from Bath — One for all: forecasting intermittent and non-intermittent demand using one model. It was well received although one of the professors did not understand the main point of the presentation and I could not explain him, why this is important and why the proposed approach […]

# 19th IIF Workshop presentation

An IIF workshop “Supply Chain Forecasting for Operations” took place at Lancaster University on 28th and 29th of June. I have given a presentation on a topic that John Boylan and I are currently working on. We suggest a universal statistical model, that allows uniting standard methods of forecasting (for example, for fast moving products) […]

# International Symposium on Forecasting 2016

This time I presented a talk on Trace Forecast Likelihood, based on the presentation given at Ghent and in Higher School of Economics earlier this year. Unfortunately, I was in the session of statisticians, who discussed hypothesis testing and weren’t aware of the area of my presentation. As a result, this presentation passed without any […]

# International Symposium on Forecasting 2015

I have given a presentation on ISF2015 in Riverside, USA. The topic of presentation was Complex Exponential Smoothing for Time Series Forecasting. This is based on a paper submitted to International Journal on Forecasting, which is currently under review. Here’s the presentation.
