In 2005, the Applied Probability Society initiated the annual Markov Lecture, to be delivered in the fall of each year at the INFORMS Annual Meeting. The intent is to both honor the associated speaker and to bring to the APS membership topical work of the highest calibre in our discipline. The Markov Lecturer is selected by the APS prize committee.
