DAS Practice Award

Abstract submission deadline: May 15, 2016

Winning material: Using Multi-criteria Decision Analysis to Explore Management Options in the Grand Canyon

Purpose of the Award

The DAS Practice Award is given annually to the best decision analysis application, as judged by a panel of Society members. Starting in 2014, it is co-sponsored by the Society of Decision Professionals. The award includes a cash prize of $750 and assistance in getting the work published in a suitable journal such as Decision Analysis or Interfaces if the winner so desires. The intent of this award is to recognize, promote, and publicize good decision analysis practice. Previous publication of the work does not preclude it from consideration for this award.
