Special NN5 session at WCCI 2008

There will be a special session on the NN5 competition at the WCCI 2008 conference. All those planning to submit predictions are invited to submit abstracts describing their methods to apply for presentation at the 2008 WCCI conference.

The 2008 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI 2008) will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre during June 1-6, 2008 (Sunday – Friday). WCCI 2008 is composed of the 2008 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2008), the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2008) and the 2008 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC 2008).

The congress will feature world-renowned plenary speakers, regular technical sessions, state-of-the-art special sessions, interactive poster sessions, moderated panel discussions, informative pre-congress tutorials, complementary post-congress workshops, and entertaining social functions.  

— Abstracts are limited to 500 words, and should describe the method and methodology used to predict the time series. The title should indicate the method used and contain ‘NN5' in the title, submissions as plain text via email are encouraged (submitt to competition-chair@neural-forecasting-competition.com)
— Presentations are restricted to NN5 competition participants (those that will submit predictions on the NN5 datasets). Presentations of those submitting abstracts but not submitting predictions by the deadline will be cancelled.
— Presentations at other NN5 conference sessions (e.g. ISF'08 and DMIN'08) do not preclude presentation at WCCI'08 – you can present at multiple conference sessions.
— In order to present at the NN5 session those accepted must register to attend the main WCCI'08 conference. Those already registered for WCCI'08 with one or two papers presented in other conference sessions require no extra registration for this session.
— The best prediction will win a free registration (refund on site) awarded during the session
