2023 UPS George D. Smith Prize

Anne Robinson, Kinaxis and Chair of the UPS George D. Smith Prize Committee, sits down with Kara Tucker to discuss an INFORMS award that highlights excellence in university O.R. programs. The UPS George D. Smith Prize is created in the spirit of strengthening ties between industry and the schools of higher education that graduate young practitioners of operations research. INFORMS, with the help of the INFORMS Practice Section, will award the prize to an academic department or program for effective and innovative preparation of students to be good practitioners of operations research, management science, or analytics. The UPS George D. Smith Prize is named in honor of the late UPS Chief Executive Officer who was a champion of operations researchers at a leading Fortune 500 corporation. The deadline to submit for the 2024 Prize is November 26, and it will be awarded at the 2024 INFORMS Business Analytics Conference.
