2015 INFORMS Health Applications Society Student Paper Competition
The INFORMS Health Applications Society (HAS) is pleased to announce its first student paper competition. Four finalists will be selected for papers judged to be the best in the field of Health Applications (in terms of both methodology and potential for impact). The first prize winner is accompanied by a $500 honorarium; the second prize winner is accompanied by a $300 honorarium; and each of the remaining two finalists is accompanied by a $100 honorarium. The prize winners will be announced at the conference. In addition to the monetary honorariums, all four finalists will have their registration fees waived at the conference.
The INFORMS Health Applications Society (HAS) welcomes students who are conducting research in healthcare applications to submit a single paper to its annual student paper competition. Applicants are also encouraged to submit their work for oral or poster presentation at the conference here.
Selection and Awards:
Leading healthcare scholars will serve as judges. They will evaluate the papers based on quality, novelty and importance of methodology, contribution to healthcare research, and potential for impact on practice. Four finalists will be selected and notified. The finalists must present their work in a special session at the conference. HAS will reimburse the four finalists’ conference registration fees. Presentation quality will be taken into account in deciding the first and second prize winners. The conference rule of one talk per speaker will be relaxed for the four finalists so that they can present in the finalists’ session in the event that they have another scheduled presentation. Winners will be announced during the conference. The awards are: First Prize: $500; Second Prize: $300; Third and Fourth Prize: $100 each.
All three items must be sent as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Complete entries must be received on or before Thursday, January 15, 2015. Email email@example.com if you have any questions. Good luck to all entrants!
