JFIG Paper Competition Results

by Michael Trick on November 10th, 2014

The Junior Faculty Interest Group paper competition is one of the highlights of the INFORMS conference for me.  I was part of the (large) judging panel for this year, and there were many, many great papers submitted.  It made it very difficult to get down to a final set, let alone pick a winner.  But the panel did end up both with six finalists and with a selection of first, second and third place winners.  Here are the results:


First Place:
Two-Term Disjunctions on the Second-Order Cone
Fatma Kilinc-Karzan and Sercan Yildiz

Second Place:
Unbalanced Random Matching Markets: The Stark Effect of Competition
Itai Ashlagi, Yashodhan Kanoria, and Jacob Leshno

Third Place:
Third Place: Multistage Adaptive Robust Optimization for Electric Power Systems Operation
Andy Sun and Alvaro Lorca

Honorable Mention:
Optimal Learning with Non-Gaussian Rewards
Zi Ding and Ilya Ryzhov

Modified Echelon (r, Q) Policies with Guaranteed Performance Bounds for Stochastic Serial Inventory Systems
Ming Hu and Yi Yang

A Large-Scale Multi-Server Fork-Join Network with Non-Exchangeable Synchronization
Hongyuan Lu and Guodong Pang

Congratulations to all of the participants!
