Professor Tao Hong has generously funded a new research award for the best International Journal of Forecasting (IJF) paper on energy forecasting, to be awarded every two years. The award for 2016 is for papers published within 2013-2014. Next year we will award a paper published in 2015-2016, and we will make the award every two years after that.
The award decision was made by a committee consisting of Professors Pierre Pinson, James Mitchell and Rob J Hyndman.
The first IIF Tao Hong Award goes to Professor Rafał Weron for his 2014 paper “Electricity price forecasting: A review of the state-of-the-art with a look into the future”, IJF 30(4), 1030-1081. To read more about Professor Weron and the award, visit Rob Hyndman’s blog, Hyndsight.
