Fulkerson Prize 2015  Call for nominations
The Fulkerson Prize Committee invites nominations for the Delbert Ray Fulkerson
Prize, sponsored jointly by the Mathematical Optimization Society (MOS) and the
American Mathematical Society (AMS). Up to three awards of US$ 1,500 each are
presented at each (triennial) International Symposium of the MOS. The Fulkerson
Prize is for outstanding papers in the area of discrete mathematics. The prize
will be awarded at the 22nd International Symposium on Mathematical Programming
to be held in Pittsburgh, USA on July 1217, 2015.
Eligible papers should represent the final publication of the main result(s) and
should have been published in a recognized journal or in a comparable, wellrefereed volume intended
to publish final publications only, during the six calendar years preceding the year of the
Symposium (thus, from January 2009 through December 2014). The prizes will be given for single
papers, not series of papers or books, and in the event of joint authorship the prize will be
divided.
The term "discrete mathematics" is interpreted broadly and is intended
to include graph theory, networks, mathematical programming, applied combinatorics, applications of
discrete mathematics to computer science, and related subjects. While research work in these areas
is usually not far removed from practical applications, the judging of papers will be based only on
their mathematical quality and significance.
