NN3 Forecasting Competition

From: Crone, Sven <s.crone@lancaster.ac.uk>
Date: Wed, 25 Oct 2006 02:46:31 +0100

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

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
