Forecasting with Big Data

Our chosen theme this year is Forecasting with Big Data. Big data is certainly a hot area - the proliferation of data is probably the major change we"ve seen in the forecasting landscape for quite some while. This theme aims to encourage at least some of the potential speakers to pick up ideas stimulated by the topic. Big Data provides us with a whole set of new possibilities to develop new methods and models as well approaches that deliver better forecasts.
