Hello All -

I am pleased to announce that the AMS 2012 Wind Power Forecasting data
are available online at http://ai.metr.ou.edu/contest/.  The contest
consists of two parts:  1. a day-ahead forecasting contest and 2. a
short-term (1-, 2-, and 3-hr) contest.  Participants are welcome to
enter either or both parts of the contests.  We welcome entries from
professionals to students.  Entrants names will be kept blind - they
must register an abstract to present a poster at AMS, then winners
will be notified of an invitation to present a talk at the January AMS
Annual Meeting in Atlanta.  So please publicize this contest widely.
We expect to solicit prize money, which will be announced on the
website at a later time.

Thanks for spreading the word.
