The ISF Program Committee looks forward to receiving abstracts and hearing inventive presentations that demonstrate again that the annual forecasting symposium is the premier forum where the latest forecasting research is presented. See below for a list of subject areas.

We are accepting proposals for invited sessions devoted to special interests in forecasting. An invited session consists of 3 or 4 talks around a specific forecasting theme. If you are interested in organizing a session, please contact the Program Chair with the topic and brief description. The deadline for proposals is 4 March.
