    The deadline to submit an application form for the DAS/SDP Practice Award has been extended to August 3. We're still looking for a few more excellent examples of decision analysis in practice.

    About the Award

    The Decision Analysis Practice Award is sponsored jointly by the Decision Analysis Society and the Society of Decision Professionals. It is given annually to the best decision analysis application, as judged by a panel of members of both Societies. The award includes a cash prize of $750 and assistance in getting the work published in a suitable journal, if the winner so desires. The winner of the Practice Award is also invited to present their work at the Decision Analysis Affinity Group (DAAG) conference the following spring.

    How does the Competition Work?

    Applicants submit a nomination form and client testimonial by August 3. The Award Committee selects three finalists. The three finalists present their work at the INFORMS Annual Meeting, where the Award Committee selects and announces the winner. The 2020 INFORMS Annual Meeting will be held virtually, November 8-11.
