To improve outreach and diversity among young researchers in the field of simulation, the INFORMS Simulation Society is proud to award sponsorship each year to assist graduate students or postdocs to attend the Winter Simulation Conference (WSC).
We especially encourage applications from women, underrepresented minorities, or students who may add to the diversity of the community in other ways; however this award is not limited to specific genders or ethnicity groups. The WSC Diversity Committee is looking forward to receiving applications for the 2023 WSC Diversity Award.
For a complete application, three items are required. 1. The applicant fills in this online application form (https://forms.gle/qybU7LjuQis3CK1AA). 2. A letter of intent written by the applicant shall be sent to the committee chair. 3. A letter of recommendation written by the applicant’s advisor shall be sent to the committee chair. The application due date is September 30, 2023.
More information: In the letters of intent, the applicants shall explain their background and why they would like to join the WSC community through participation at the WSC conference. The letter of recommendation should highlight the applicant’s potential contribution to the field of simulation, and explain how the applicant and their efforts will contribute to the diversity of the simulation community.
