Special Session Proposals (deadline passed)

If you are a professional or academic with substantial expertise in an area of forecasting, you are invited to propose a special session to be held within this stream - on any particular forecasting related topic you are interested in.

Details on the organization of the process will be announced upon acceptance of your special session. In case you are unfamiliar with EURO conferences, please find some preliminary information enclosed: A session typically consists of 4 papers, but can also consist of more. In agreeing to organize and chair a session you would be responsible in sourcing the papers (of course, with our help in advertising them on our website and through mailings). Allow us to also point out, that organizing a special session (or a stream) yields only academic benefits, but no financial discounts. Only abstracts are submitted, no full papers, reviewed and if accepted presented at the conference. Abstracts to be submitted for each paper must be written in English and contain no more than 600 characters (no formulas or mathematical notations are allowed). Each attendee is allowed to present ONE paper at the conference; this applies for all attendees including authors of abstracts, special session organizers or special session stream reorganizers!

Further details (deadlines, format, etc.). will be send upon acceptance of the proposal.
