SOLA Best Student Paper Award - 2021
The INFORMS Society on Location Analysis (SOLA) announces the inaugural (2021) Student Paper Competition. The award is planned to be given biennially for student papers judged to be the best in the broad field of facility location. We encourage papers that promote the development of analytical methods, techniques and tools in the tradition of operations research/management science (OR/MS) as applied to the study of facility location.
All finalists will be notified by September 1, 2021 and are expected to present their paper in a SOLA Best Student Paper Competition session during the INFORMS Annual Meeting, which is currently being planned as a hybrid format this year where attendees can join either virtually or in Anaheim, CA . The SOLA Best Student Paper Competition winner will receive a plague during the SOLA Business Meeting at the annual conference.
