Fellow Award

MSOM Distinguished Fellows Award: Call for Nominations.

The MSOM Society of INFORMS is now accepting nominations for the 2021 Distinguished Fellows Award. Selection as an MSOM Fellow should be considered a rare distinction, comparable with membership in Omega Rho (The Honors Society of INFORMS). Teaching and service contributions are not considered in the selection process.

Nominations are to be submitted electronically to the Award Committee Chair, President Atalay Atasu, atalay.atasu@insead.edu by February 27th 2021.

Please take note of the following two important points:

  1. As stipulated in the Fellows founding document, a candidate must be nominated by at least two MSOMsociety members. The nomination should include letters of support from each nominator.
  2. The committee will only consider those candidates nominated this cycle. People who nominated a candidate in some previous cycle should submit their nomination again if they wish the candidate to be considered this cycle.

This selected Fellow(s) will be announced in the business meeting at the July 2020 MSOM Conference to be held in Banff. The Fellow(s) will be invited to make a presentation at the conference.
