Forecasting researchers may be interested in the following announcement:
The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) will host Proposers' Day for the Aggregative Contingent Estimation (ACE) program on Wednesday, May 19, 2010 in anticipation of the release of a new solicitation in support of the program. The ACE program will focus on aggregating individual judgments to create group forecasts and on communicating the resulting quantitative probabilities to end-users.
The purpose of the conference will be to provide information on the ACE Program, to address questions from potential proposers and to provide a forum for potential proposers to present their capabilities for teaming opportunities.
This announcement serves as a pre-solicitation notice and is issued solely for information and planning purposes. The Proposers’ Day Conference does not constitute a formal solicitation for proposals or proposal abstracts. Conference attendance is voluntary and is not required to propose to future solicitations (if any) associated with this program.
