Student Paper Competition
Student Paper Competition Winners
Each year CORS conducts a student paper competition to recognize the contribution of a paper either directly to the field of operational research through the development of methodology or to another field through the application of operational research. The competition serves to showcase the high quality of OR education in Canada as well as the excellence of the new generation of operational researchers. Prizes are awarded in two categories: Undergraduate and Open. MBA students (and other specialized master students) are encouraged to participate in the competition in the open category with their applied projects.
The applicant must be enrolled as a full-time student in a Canadian institution, in an undergraduate, masters, or PhD program during the school year 2018–2019. Canadians who are studying outside of Canada are also eligible. Applicants in undergraduate programs are eligible to apply in both categories: Open and Undergraduate.
We thank you for your interest, but applications are no longer accepted for 2019.
Finalists will be announced (tentatively) in the week of April 29.
Chair: Nadia Lahrichi
Chair: Tamon Stephen
Open Category: First Prize $500, Honorable Mention $100
Undergraduate Category: First Prize $200, Honorable Mention $50
All papers selected as Finalists receive a certificate.
If an undergraduate wins the open competition, no undergraduate prize will be awarded. In the case of close competition, papers not winning an award may receive honourable mention.
Finalists selected for the undergraduate category will be eligible to apply for partial funding to attend the CORS Annual Conference. The Education Chair will contact finalists with details.
