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 4th of October- Thursday 7th of October, 2021.

    A series of 3 mini-courses will be provided by Johanna Ziegel, University of Bern, on Statistical forecast evaluation.

    The program of the workshop is available here. The focus is on young researchers who will have the opportunity to present their work in person.

    The slides of the presentations are available here (password on request).
