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.

If you are interested in hosting a workshop, read our Workshop Guidelines.  For more information or to propose a future workshop, contact: .
