The International Institute of Forecasters sponsors workshops, each of which focuses on a specific forecasting theme. 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. 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, contact Aris Syntetos, IIF Director, or click here for workshop guidelines.
25th IIF Workshop: Predictive Analytics: Theory, Applications and Algorithms
23-24 May 2019
Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom
The IIF, in collaboration with Anglia Ruskin University, Siemens AG Munich and the German Operations Research Society, will be organizing an international workshop, “Predictive Analytics: Theory, Applications and Algorithms.” This workshop is intended as a forum for discussion and evaluation of new and recent research, applications and algorithms in this field. Its aim is to bring together researchers and professionals interested in the Predictive Analytics, from different disciplines, to discuss both models and applications.
This is a series of ongoing workshops on forecasting using R in developing countries. The aim of the project is to ‘train the trainers’ in the form of university students, academics and professionals on the principles of forecasting using R software to support decision making. The ultimate goal of this project is to train 400 individuals, over 5 years in 20 developing countries in the world. The first series of workshops have already been offered in 2017-18. The workshops are given by Dr. Bahman Rostami-Tabar, Assistant Professor in Management Science at Cardiff Business School. To organise a workshop in your country, contact [email protected]
