VALPRED Workshop


    This workshop is dealing with the topic of validation of forecasting and relative topics.
    In a nutshell, our goal is to mix around 35 researchers, statisticians, meteorologists, energy providers and other end users who have a common interest in probability forecasting, especially in the assessment of different forecasts.

    The non-exhaustive list of potential topics is:

    scoring rules theory, scoring functions in machine learning,
    forecasting methods, aggregation of predictions and scores,
    extreme value theory, interpretation of the predictions.

    The workshop will take place at the Aussois CNRS center in France in the Alps region from Monday 9th of March- Thursday 12th of March, 2020.
