Student Paper Competition
Purpose of the Award
The INFORMS Manufacturing and Service Operations Management Society (MSOM) announces the Student Paper Competition. The awards are given annually for papers judged to be the best in the field of Operations Management.
The first prize is accompanied by a $500 honorarium. The second prize is accompanied by a $300 honorarium. Prizes will be awarded at the Fall INFORMS meeting. In addition, all finalists will be awarded $100. The number of finalists will depend on the number of entries. Typically there are six finalists including the first and second place winners.
Finalists will be invited to submit abstracts of their paper for publication in Manufacturing & Service Operations Management. (Under INFORMS policy, the publication of such abstracts in no way conflicts with submission of the full manuscript for review to any INFORMS or other journal for publication.)
