    Call for Nominations for the Lifetime Achievement in Location Analysis Award

    Dear Colleagues:

    This is a Call for Nominations for the Lifetime Achievement in Location Analysis Award. The Lifetime Achievement in Location Analysis (LALA) award is a triennial honor awarded to a person who has made significant lifetime contributions to location analysis research. The award is given every third year at the closing dinner of ISOLDE, the International Symposium on Locational Decisions.

    The award and the ISOLDE conference has been postponed last year due to COVID-19. This year's ISOLDE will be held as a virtual meeting. More information can be found here: ISOLDE XV.

    LALA Nominations will be received until May 15, 2021. The nomination process consists of sending by email the following three items:

    (1) A letter of nomination, including significant reasons why this individual should be considered for this award.

    (2) An up-to-date curriculum vitae of the nominee.

    (3) Information about citations and service to the profession for the nominee.

    The selection committee consists of Sibel Alumur Alev (chair), Gilbert Laporte, and Stefan Nickel. Please submit nominations (including self-nominations) by May 15, 2021, to sibel.alumur@uwaterloo.ca. Questions may be directed to the same e-mail address.
