BITSS Workshop: Forecasting Social Science Research Results

Despite growing interest in forecasting and predictions across a number of fields, there is currently neither a centralized platform to collect predictions, nor consensus on best practices. To address this issue, BITSS will host a workshop on Forecasting Social Science Research Results on December 11, 2018, in coordination with the 2018 Annual Meeting.

Led by Stefano DellaVigna (UC Berkeley) and Eva Vivalt (Australian National University), the workshop will bring together academic leaders from across disciplines to share knowledge, present recent research on forecasting, and chart a path for the future. The workshop will also serve as a venue for discussing the design of a shared platform to facilitate the collection and cataloguing of forecasts for the broader research community.
