********************************************************

***   NN3 Neural Networks Forecasting Competition    ***

********************************************************

 

The 2006-2007 Forecasting competition for Neural Networks and
Computational Intelligence Methods has started!

Please visit the NN3 website at
http://www.neural-forecasting-competition.com/ for further instructions.

 

*********************************************************

Objectives

*********************************************************

Forecast a set of 11 or 111 time series as accurately as possible, using
methods from computational intelligence and a consistent methodology. We
hope to evaluate progress in modelling neural networks for forecasting &
to disseminate knowledge on "best practices". The competition is for
academic purposes and supported by a grant from SAS & the International
Institute of Forecasters (IIF). 

 

*********************************************************

Methods

*********************************************************

The prediction competition is open to all methods of computational
intelligence, incl. feed-forward and recurrent neural networks, fuzzy
predictors, decision & regression tress, support vector regression,
hybrid approaches etc. used in financial forecasting, statistical
prediction, time series analysis

 

*********************************************************

Publication of Results

*********************************************************

The results will be presented at various conferences in 2007. All those
submitting predictions will be invited to participate in Events at
ISF'07, New York, IJCNN'07, Orlando (pending), DMIN'07, Las Vegas
(pending) and LUMS'07, Manchester, and submit papers to those special
sessions. All submissions will invited for a full publication in an
edited book "Advances of Neural Forecasting", subject to acceptance
(pending). The most successful authors will be invited for a joint
submission to the highly acclaimed International Journal of Forecasting
(ISI SCI, DBLP etc. indexed). 

 

*********************************************************

Dates & deadlines

*********************************************************

20 October 2006 Publication of reduced & complete dataset

May 2007        Predictions submissions due

June&July 2007  Publication of preliminary results at various
conferences in USA, UK etc

August 2007     Submissions to full publications

 

GOOD LUCK!
