MSOM Distinguished Fellows Award: Call for Nominations

  • 1.  MSOM Distinguished Fellows Award: Call for Nominations

    Posted 03-05-2018 20:36

    The MSOM Society of INFORMS is now accepting nominations for the 2018 Distinguished Fellows Award. Selection as an MSOM Fellow should be considered a rare distinction, comparable with membership in Omega Rho (The Honors Society of INFORMS). Teaching and service contributions are not considered in the selection process.

     This year's selection committee is as follows: Gad Allon (MSOM President), Guillermo Gallego (MSOM Fellow), Jeannette Song (MSOM Fellow), Terry Taylor (MSOM past president) and Brian Tomlin (MSOM past president) and Nominations are to be submitted electronically to by April 10th.

    Please take note of the following two important points:

    1. As stipulated in the Fellows founding document, a candidate must be nominated by at least two MSOM society members. The nomination should include letters of support from each nominator.
    2. The committee will only consider those candidates nominated this cycle. People who nominated a candidate in some previous cycle should submit their nomination again if they wish the candidate to be considered this cycle.

    This selected Fellow(s) will be announced in the business meeting at the July 2018 MSOM Conference to be held in Dallas. The Fellow(s) will be invited to make a presentation at the conference.
