Call for Abstracts for the 2023 Forecasting in the Social Sciences

The Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) will hold its 2nd Forecasting Workshop on Friday, October 13, 2023 at UC Berkeley.

The Forecasting Workshop, led by Professors Stefano DellaVigna (UC Berkeley) and Eva Vivalt (University of Toronto), will bring together leaders from across academic disciplines to share knowledge, present new research findings, and continue charting a path forward for prediction in the social sciences. We are excited to showcase how the Social Science Prediction Platform is facilitating the collection and cataloging of forecasts for the broader research community.

Anna Dreber (Stockholm School of Economics), Philip Tetlock (University of Pennsylvania), and Barbara Mellers (University of Pennsylvania) will present the keynote talks this year and we're looking forward to a great day full of interesting papers and conversations!
