About the Workshops
The International Institute of Forecasters sponsors annual workshops, each of which focuses on a specific theme (e.g., stochastic demographic forecasting). The purpose of these workshops is to hold smaller, informal meetings where experts in a particular field of forecasting can discuss forecasting problems, research, and solutions. There is generally a nominal registration fee associated with attendance. Later, and following the usual refereeing process, papers from the workshops can be included in a special issue of the International Journal of Forecasting.
