INFORMS Awards

I just got back from the INFORMS Award ceremonies. Some of the highlights:

1) John von Neumann Theory Prize went to Robert Aumann, who also won the Nobel Prize in Economics this year. The committee picked Aumann before the Nobel Prize was announced. Pretty good year for Robert!

2) The Lanchester Prize (best publication in English) went to Garrett van Ryzin and Kalyan Talluri for their Revenue Management book.

3) Peter Bell of the University of Western Ontario won the INFORMS Prize for the Teaching of OR/MS Practice. Peter has worked a lot on cases in OR/MS.

There were a number of other prizes. I am sure the INFORMS Prize web page will have these shortly.
