Ann-Sophie De Pauw receives scholarship of the Dispute Resolution Research Centre

Vlerick researcher and doctoral student Ann-Sophie De Pauw was awarded with a prestigious scholarship of the Dispute Resolution Research Centre (DRRC) at the Kellogg School of Management (USA, Chicago). This scholarship allows her to attend the 25th international conference of the International Association for Conflict Management (IACM) on 11-14 July 2012 in Stellenbosch (South Africa). For the conference she submitted two papers, both of which were accepted for presentation.

In total the DRRC sponsors five scholarships for PhD students to attend the IACM conference. The competition this year was very strong. The IACM selection committee based their decision on the quality of paper submissions (as determined by reviewer ratings and comments). Ann-Sophie De Pauw submitted two conference papers, both of which were reviewed as being of outstanding quality. During a special ceremony at the IACM conference she will receive an award for her work.

Ann-Sophie De Pauw is currently pursuing a PhD. In her PhD thesis, which is expected in Summer 2013, she investigates the impact of social categorisation, leadership, and individual characteristics on cooperative decision-making in social dilemmas. Her research is funded by the Intercollegiate Centre of Management Sciences (ICM).

    Statistical forecasting models are becoming increasingly sophisticated and software is readily available to support the forecasting process, yet surveys show that in only 25% of cases, demand forecasts are based exclusively on statistical models; 75% of the time they are the result of human judgement alone (25%), a statistical model adjusted by the forecaster(s) (33%) or an average of statistical and judgemental forecasts (17%). Human judgement therefore plays an important role. But how does it impact on forecasting accuracy? To date, little empirical research has been done in this area. The Vlerick Forecasting Research Centre fills this gap.
