Dual Self-Attention Network for Multivariate Time Series Forecasting

20.10.26 Update: Due to the difficulty of installation and code maintenance caused by frequent updates of pytorch-lightning, the code does not work correctly now. We hope this code is useful for your reference, especially the part about the model, however, we are sorry that we will no longer maintain the project. We recommend you to refer to other similar applications of self-attention mechanism in time series, such as "Enhancing the Locality and Breaking the Memory Bottleneck of Transformer on Time Series Forecasting" and

This project is the PyTorch implementation of the paper "DSANet: Dual Self-Attention Network for Multivariate Time Series Forecasting", in which we propose a dual self-attention network (DSANet) for multivariate time series forecasting. The network architecture is illustrated in the following figure, and more details about the effect of each component can be found in the paper.


  • Python 3.5 or above
  • PyTorch 1.1 or above
  • pytorch-lightning

How to run

You need to prepare the dataset first. Check here.

# clone project
git clone

install dependencies

cd DSANet pip install requirements.txt


python --data_name {data_name} --n_multiv {n_multiv}

Notice: At present, we find that there are some bugs (presumably some problems left by the old version of pytorch-lightning) that make our code unable to run correctly on GPUs. You can currently run the code on the CPU as above.
