The INFORMS Society for Marketing Science Advisory Board is accepting nominations for the 2019 Long Term Impact Award. 

To be eligible, a paper should have been published between six and ten years before the year in which the award is presented. For example, for the presentation year 2019, the paper should have been published sometime in the years 2009 and 2013. Eligible papers are original research articles and research commentaries.  Editorials, Database articles, Practice prize articles, Review articles, Invited articles, and Invited commentaries are not eligible. For the 2019 award, the papers are:

(1) all eligible papers published in Marketing Science between 2009 and 2013,

(2) all eligible papers published in Management Science between 2009 and 2013 that were handled by a Department Editor for Marketing or that use "marketing" as a key word, or

(3) Any other eligible paper published in an INFORMS journal between 2009 and 2013 that is nominated by an ISMS member other than the author(s) of the paper being nominated.

Authors of papers in categories (1) and (2) do not need to nominate their papers; they will be considered automatically.  Thus most of the papers eligible for the award will qualify automatically, and no response to this notice is required for these. This notice is relevant only for papers in category (3).

Some possible measures of impact are magnitude of subsequent work that builds on the paper, use in PhD reading lists and seminars, applications to  practice, and use in MBA teaching. The letter might explain how the paper shows the field something that it did not know before, shows a new way of thinking about a problem or issue, and/or opens up a new field of inquiry.

The nomination must be sent electronically in PDF format and it must include the complete bibliographic citation.  To be consistent with the award protocol, nominations cannot be accepted after March 1, 2019

Call for Nominations:  The 2020 Gary L. Lilien ISMS-MSI-EMAC Practice Prize Competition

The INFORMS Society for Marketing Science (ISMS) solicits entries for the 2020 Practice Prize Competition, the culmination of which will take place at the:

2020 ISMS Marketing Science Conference

 

Goal:  The goal of the Practice Prize is to highlight and celebrate outstanding marketing science work that has had significant organizational impact.

 

Eligibility:  The Practice Prize is awarded for outstanding implementation of marketing science concepts and methods. The methods used must be innovative, sound, and appropriate to the problem and organization, and the work should have had significant, verifiable, and preferably quantitative impact on the performance of the client organization. Historically, two types of entries have been recognized: (1) a history of successful applications across time and/or organizations and (2) a single, impactful application.  For the latter type of entry, the work should normally be completed within the five-year period prior to the year of the competition. All the work done between July 2014 and June 2019 will be eligible to enter the 2020 competition.  Prior publication of the work does not disqualify it. Anyone is eligible to enter except members of the judging committee.

 

Entry and Details:   Entrants must submit:

  • a 500-1000 word Abstract of the work, and
  • An Impact Statement, a supplementary summary of what was accomplished and its organizational impact in enough detail (normally 500-1000 words) to judge the appropriateness of the work for the competition.
  • Supplementary technical material that provides sufficient technical detail to permit the Prize Committee to judge the technical merit of the work.

 

Three or four competition finalists will be selected from amongst the entries.

 

Finalists will present their work at the ISMS Marketing Science Conference and the judging will take place immediately thereafter. The winner (or, in unusual circumstances, winners) will be announced at the Conference. Finalists will have the right to submit their work to Marketing Science in the Practice Prize submission category. 

For a summary of some previous Finalists see Lilien, Roberts and Shankar (Marketing Science 32.2 (2013): 229-245).

The Marketing Research Special Interest Group of the American Marketing Association is seeking nominations for the 2019 V. “Seenu” Srinivasan Young Scholar Award in Quantitative Methodology. The award is facilitated by Stanford University, University of Memphis, and Friends of Seenu Srinivasan in honor of V. “Seenu” Srinivasan, Adams Distinguished Professor of Management Emeritus at Stanford University.

 

The purpose of the award is to encourage and reward research on new quantitative and empirical methodologies that are of interest to both academics and practitioners of marketing as opposed to qualitative methodologies, or those restricted to use in lab experiment settings. This includes methodological topics related, but not limited, to the measurement of preferences, brand strength in a market, the influence of an individual in social media, the effect of loyalty programs, and/or the price response in competitive equilibrium.

 

A young scholar eligible for the award should have received a marketing (or related) doctoral degree no more than six years prior to receipt of the award. This is an annual individual award and a person who has won the award once is not eligible to receive it again. The award is associated with a specific body of work which is either published or accepted for publication in scholarly journal(s) including, but not limited to, the Journal of Marketing Research, Management Science, Marketing Science, Quantitative Marketing & Economics, and International Journal of Research in Marketing.

 

The winner will be chosen by a three member committee selected from current/past editors/senior editors/department editors/associate editors of premier marketing journals and at large quantitative marketing scholars. Please send a nomination letter for a young scholar, not exceeding 250 words, highlighting scholar’s contribution(s) to the theory and practice of quantitative methodologies in marketing, by April 15, 2019 to Praveen Kopalle (Praveen.K.Kopalle@tuck.dartmouth.edu).

 

This award will be presented in August at the 2019 AMA Summer Educators' Conference in Chicago.
