      *** NN3 Neural Networks Forecasting Competition ***
      ********************************************************

      The 2006-2007 Forecasting Competition for Neural Networks and Computational
      Intelligence Methods has started!
      Please visit the NN3 website at
      http://www.neural-forecasting-competition.com/ for further instructions.

      *********************************************************
      Objectives
      *********************************************************
      Forecast a set of 11 or 111 time series as accurately as possible, using
      methods from computational intelligence and a consistent methodology. We
      hope to evaluate progress in modelling neural networks for forecasting & to
      disseminate knowledge on "best practices". The competition is for academic
      purposes and supported by a grant from SAS & the International Institute of
      Forecasters (IIF).

      *********************************************************
      Methods
      *********************************************************
      The prediction competition is open to all methods of computational
      intelligence, incl. feed-forward and recurrent neural networks, fuzzy
      predictors, decision & regression tress, support vector regression, hybrid
      approaches etc. used in financial forecasting, statistical prediction, time
      series analysis

      *********************************************************
      Publication of Results
      *********************************************************
      The results will be presented at various conferences in 2007. All those
      submitting predictions will be invited to participate in Events at ISF'07,
      New York, IJCNN'07, Orlando (pending), DMIN'07, Las Vegas (pending) and
      LUMS'07, Manchester, and submit papers to those special sessions. All
      submissions will invited for a full publication in an edited book "Advances
      of Neural Forecasting", Springer (ISI SCI, DBLP etc. indexed), subject to
      acceptance (pending). The most successful authors will be invited for a
      joint submission to the highly acclaimed International Journal of
      Forecasting (ISI SCI, DBLP etc. indexed).

      *********************************************************
      Dates & deadlines
      *********************************************************
      20 October 2006 Publication of reduced & complete dataset
      14 May 2007 Prediction submissions due
      June&July 2007 Publication of preliminary results at various conferences in
      USA, UK etc
      August 2007 Submissions to full publications

      GOOD LUCK!

      Sven F. Crone & Konstantinos Nikolopoulos
