OR60 - President’s Medal Competition

The President’s Medal is one of The OR Society’s most prestigious awards, and we are inviting entries for the competition.

The President’s Medal is awarded for the best practical application of O.R. submitted to the competition (a wide definition of O.R. is used). Entries are welcomed from both industry based O.R. workers and consultants as well as from academics. One of the main qualifications for entry is that the work has been implemented before submission.

If you’re thinking of giving a case study based paper at our annual conference, why not consider aiming a bit higher and going for the President’s Medal?

Criteria for judging include:

  • The level of demonstrable benefit
  • The intellectual and novel content of the solution
  • The likely longevity of the solution
  • The excellence of the O.R. process

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION:  30 June 2018
All submissions to be made by email to the Secretary & General Manager of the OR Society, gavin.blackett@theorsociety.com
