    Dear Community,

    We have updated the rules for the competition due to the current COVID-19 situation, and have added some flexibility to the physical presentation requirement for the winners, which now could be done virtually depending on the format of this year's INFORMS annual meeting. Please check the revised rules here.

    • Due to the impact of COVID-19, instead of attending in-person award session, 2020 INFORMS RAS student award recipients still have to participate but can make a presentation with TBD format which depends on how INFORMS structures the annual meeting. Award recipients must travel to the INFORMS Annual Meeting, usually held in the fall in the United States, at their own expense and give a presentation on their paper. Recipients will receive instructions on when and how to attend. Failure to present disqualifies the recipient and the award is re-allocated.

    Thanks,
