Forecasting Political and Economic Crisis: Social Science Meets Machine Learning

The workshop will run for 2 days and will take place in June 17-18, 2019 in Barcelona. This workshop invites cutting edge research that tries to forecast rare negative events using quantitative methods of evaluating risk. We explicitly invite researchers from all fields, inside and outside of academia and using methods spanning from expert opinion to machine learning. The goal of the workshop is to foster an exchange about methods across fields and between operational systems and academic models.
