This is a call for contributions for the following 3-day workshop:
*Industry & Practices for Forecasting — second edition* to be held 3 miles away from Paris, from June 5 to 7, 2013.

Its focus is on the forecasting of time series using stochastic modeling and/or learning methods, in a high dimensional context.

The purpose is to bring together academics and industry professionals to share different experiences and discuss future trends related to this area.
Both theoretical and practical issues will be considered.
The industries at hand are: energy, finance, transportation, networks, IT, meteorology, health research and environment.

This workshop will consist of plenary sessions (about 1 hour) and contributed sessions (about 30 min).

Plenary talks will be given by:
– Gabor LUGOSI, Pompeu Fabra University, Spain
– Shie MANNOR, Technion University, Israel
– Axel MUNK, Georg-August-University of Gottingen, Germany
– Peter BUHLMANN, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

For the regular sessions, the program committee chaired by Anestis ANTONIADIS (Université J. Fourier, Grenoble, France) invites the submission of abstracts related the aforementioned topics.

A selection of papers will be invited for inclusion in a proceedings volume (most likely, in some Springer series).
