Neural Forecasting Competition @ ISF'10
The 2010 International Symposium on Foreasting
June 20-23, 2010 - San Diego, California, USA

Special Session on "Forecasting Competitions" Info

We are pleased to have a special session of the Forecasting Competition accepted at the 2010 International Symposium on Forecasting (ISF'10, www.forecasters.org/isf). For general conference info please see below.

Only abstracts (300 words maximum) are submitted to the special session (as to the complete conference) - so NO full papers will be submitted or published. Abstracts are peer reviewed and accepted / rejected for formal oral presentation (no poster sessions). Abstracts are submitted online at the ISF'10 submissions page.

Please describe the algorithm and methodology you are proposing to use to submit predictions (the deadline to submit the actual forecasts for the datasets is after the abstract deadline, so say what you are going to do). Also name the dataset(s) and time series frequency(s) you are submitting on.

Please submit it using the "Subject Area" = "Neural Nets". You MUST include the phrase "NNGC Competition" in the title, otherwise your abstract will not be assigned to our special session and your abstract may be rejected. The deadline for electronic submission of abstracts is March 1, 2010. IN ADDITION, you MUST submit the abstract by the deadline via email to s.crone@lancaster.ac.uk. Please use the subject "NNGC Competition - ISF Special Session" otherwise your email may be lost, and your submission will not be accepted.

General Conference Info

The 2010 International Symposium on Forecasting (ISF'08, www.forecasters.org/isf) - now running in its 30th year - is the premier multidisciplinary forecasting conference, attracting the world's leading forecasting researchers, practitioners, and students. Through a combination of keynote speaker presentations, academic sessions, workshops, and social programs, the ISF provides many excellent opportunities for networking, learning, and fun. The 2010 ISF will be held June 20-23, 2010 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, CA, USA. For the general conference, papers on all aspects of forecasting are welcome. The objectives of the symposium are to help disseminate knowledge about new developments in statistical, computationally intensive and judgmental forecasting methods and to promote discussion about forecasting among academicians and practitioners. The organizers welcome the attendance of delegates from diverse fields, including Economics, Finance, Business, Public Policy, Statistics, Climate and Environment, Information Systems, Psychology, Demography, Political Science, Energy and Computational Intelligence. 

ISF'10 will offer a variety of sessions relevant to research and practice in time series forecasting with neural networks and computational intelligence. Past conferences have hosted between a few special sessions to a complete simultaneous track on CI for forecasting, attracting researchers from various disciplines. ISF'10 will provide a full-day tutorial on forecasting with neural networks, conducted by Hans-Georg Zimmermann (Siemens Research), a special track with multiple presentations on forecasting with neural networks in various application domains, and the special session of the 2010 forecasting competition. Information on the scheduled sessions will be disclosed as soon as it becomes available.
