I’m chairing this year’s Kimball Medal Committee. Here is the call for nominations:
The George E. Kimball Medal is awarded by INFORMS for recognition of distinguished service to the Institute and to the profession of operations research and the management sciences. The committee for this year’s award is Michael Trick (Chair), Robin Keller, and Steve Robinson. If you would like to nominate someone (including yourself) please send an email with the name of your nominee along with a brief justification to Michael Trick (firstname.lastname@example.org) by July 31 for review in August. The website for the award is http://www.informs.org/Recognize-Excellence/INFORMS-Prizes-Awards/George-E.-Kimball-Medal and past awardees are listed at that site.
The past winners are generally an impressive group with recent winners including Brenda Dietrich, Steve Robinson, Larry Wein, Jim Bean, Mark Daskin, and yours truly (which is how I got to chair this year’s committee).
