What's New in Energy Forecasting - Jun 2013

There are three exciting events going on in the energy forecasting community:
1. Global Energy Forecasting Competition
GEFCom2012 has been a great success. A valuable benchmark data pool is being established through this competition. Many novel ideas are brought to the field by the data scientists worldwide. Several papers from the top entries will be published in two prestigious scholarly journals, International Journal of Forecasting and IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid. An overview paper can be accessed from this post.
Meanwhile, we have started planning GEFCom2014. If you are interested, you are welcome to join the interest list to get the most recent update.

2. Activities in IEEE PES General Meeting 2013, Vancouver, BC, Canada.
