Best Paper Award in Energy Forecasting

Professor Tao Hong has generously funded a research award for the best International Journal of Forecasting (IJF) paper on energy forecasting, to be awarded every two years. The prize will be US$1000 plus an engraved plaque. Up to one additional outstanding paper certificate may also be awarded. Nominations are invited from any reader of the IJF. Each person may nominate up to three papers, but you cannot nominate a paper that you have coauthored. Papers coauthored by Tao Hong or one of the award committee are not eligible for the prize. All nominations are to be accompanied by a short statement (up to 200 words) from the nominator, explaining why the paper deserves an award.
