Wagner Prize


Daniel H. Wagner Prize for Excellence in Operations Research Practice

Sponsored by CPMS, the Practice Section of INFORMS

This prize emphasizes the quality and coherence of the analysis used in practice. Dr. Wagner strove for strong mathematics applied to practical problems, supported by clear and intelligible writing. The Wagner Prize recognizes those principles by emphasizing good writing, strong analytical content and verifiable practice successes. The competition is held and the winner is announced at the INFORMS Annual Meeting in the fall. The 2014 winner will reprise their presentation at this conference.

Past awardees include practitioners and researchers from U.S. Coast Guard, Intel, IBM T. J. Watson Research, Schneider National, Boston University, University of Florida, and others.
