Call for Best Student Research Paper Award Entries:
Abstract Submission Information and Deadline for the INFORMS 2014
FSS Best Student Paper Competition available beginning of 2014.
The paper must represent original research conducted primarily by the student and not have been published elsewhere. (It is OK if the paper is under review for a conference/journal.)
Some assistance by other individuals (such as the student's faculty advisor) is permitted, and the paper may be co-authored with them, as long as the student is the FIRST author.
The paper should be at most 25 pages long, using Management Science style requirements. (Blind review requirements DO NOT apply.)
If your paper is selected among finalists, you will need to present your paper in the FSS Student Paper session at the INFORMS annual meeting in Minneapolis. This does NOT preclude you from presenting your paper in other sessions at the INFORMS annual meeting.
The FSS Prizes have always attracted excellent papers.
