2014 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Data Mining Orlando, Florida / December 9-12, 2014



Special Session on «Advances in Computational Intelligence for applied Time Series Forecasting» (ACIATAF)



Over the past few decades, application of simple statistical procedures with considerable heuristic or judgmental input was the beginning of forecasting, then in the 80’s, sophisticated time series models started to be used by some of the dynamic system operators, and these approaches, were to become pioneering works in this field.

Soft computing methods including support vectors regression (SVR), fuzzy inference system (FIS) and artificial neural networks (ANN) to time-series forecasting (TSF) has been growing rapidly in order to unify the field of forecasting and to bridge the gap between theory and practice, making forecasting useful and relevant for decision-making in many fields of the sciences.

The purpose of this session is to hold smaller, informal meetings where experts in a particular field of forecasting can discuss forecasting problems, research, and solutions in the field of automatic control. There is generally a nominal registration fee associated with attendance.

This session aims to debate in finding solutions for problems facing the field of forecasting. We wish to hear from people working in different research areas, practitioners, professionals and academicians involved in this problematic.


The session seeks to foster the presentation and discussion of innovative techniques, implementations and applications of different problems that are Forecasting involved, specially in real-world problems applied to control and automation.
