The ISF Program Committee welcomes the submission of abstracts for presentations to be given at our annual forecasting symposium. We encourage individuals to organize a session on a specific, unique theme in the field of forecasting. For example, we encourage sessions following the conference theme, Frontiers in Forecasting. Invited sessions will be marked as such on the program and carry a slightly higher status than a contributed session.

The deadline for submitting an invited session is January 31, 2015. For more information and to apply, see here.

The International Institute of Forecasters will grant travel awards to enable individuals from all over the world to attend the International Symposium on Forecasting taking place in Riverside, California, June 21-24th.

The deadline for applications is February 20, 2015. For more information and to apply here.
