The Junior Faculty Interest Group (JFIG) Forum of INFORMS invites submissions to the 2020 JFIG Paper Competition. JFIG aims to promote the career development of tenure-track faculty in INFORMS. The goals of the paper competition are to encourage research among junior faculty and to increase the visibility of research conducted by junior faculty within the fields of operations research and management science.
The JFIG Award Committee will judge the submissions and select up to six finalists. The papers submitted for the competition will be evaluated based on the importance of the topic, appropriateness of the research approach, and the significance of research contribution. All submissions should be made electronically (as PDF files) to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the guidelines please see the attached Call for Papers. The submission deadline for the 2020 JFIG Paper Competition is June 30, 2020, 11:59 pm (Pacific Time).
