International Society for Inventory Research PhD Summer School

In July 2023 I attended the International Society for Inventory Research PhD Summer School at Cardiff Business School.

This was an excellent week, hosted by Aris Syntetos, Moh Naim, Qinyun Li (and his son Robin), and Irina Harris.

In addition to the PhD students we had keynotes delivered by Robert Boute, Ruud Teunter, and Li Zhou. Tutorials and workshops where given by myself and Rogelio Oliva. Thanos Goltsos, Mirjam Meijer, Dennis Prak, and Patricia Rogetzer lead an Early Career Researchers session. Several other senior faculty that joined us in Cardiff for the week: Sandra Transchel, Gerard Gaalman, Zied Babai, Rob Hyndman and Bahman Rostami-Tabar.

It was great to meet up with old friends again and make some new friends back in my hometown of Cardiff. Thank you all for participating and making the Summer School such an enjoyable learning experience!
