IIF Sponsored Workshops

Home/Events/IIF Sponsored Workshops

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.

2018 Workshops:

24th IIF Workshop: Forecasting for Social Good
Cardiff, UK, July 12-13, 2018

The workshop aims to draw together academics and practitioners, from around the world, to present the latest advances in forecasting for social good. Much has been published on forecasting under financial and economic motives; however, less has contributed (both in regular conferences and journal publications) on forecasting with social impact. The aim of this workshop is to attract high quality papers that are concerned with the social impact of forecasting.

In addition to the regular presentations, we would also like to consider a practitioner track called “Challenges”. This would address challenges and open problems that practitioners currently face and the purpose of the relevant presentations will be to motivate new collaborative initiatives with academic researchers.
