Following up to the previous announcement, there are two new awards established for the best papers published in the International Journal of Forecasting, special issues, devoted to the M Forecasting competitions:
- Best M paper award — US$4000 and an engraved plaque
- Outstanding M paper award — US$2000 and a certificate
The IJF Award Committee invites you to send us nominations for the best papers published in the M4 competition special issue for IJF (2020, Volume 36, Issue 1). The new (extended) deadline for nominations, along with a short statement of support, is March 31, 2021. Nominations should be sent to Fotios Petropoulos. The winners will be announced at the International Symposium on Forecasting (ISF) 2021.
Nominations are invited from all readers of the IJF. Each reader may nominate up to three papers, but they cannot nominate a paper which they have co-authored. All nominations are to be accompanied by a short statement (up to 200 words) from the nominator, explaining why the paper deserves an award. The award committee (consisting of Spyros Makridakis, Pierre Pinson, Elaine Deschamps, Fotios Petropoulos, and Evangelos Spiliotis) will go through the nominations and decide on which papers will receive the “Best M paper award” and the “Outstanding M paper award”. Papers co-authored by award committee members are not eligible.
