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 12-17, 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, well-refereed 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.

Previous winners of the Fulkerson Prize are listed here. Further information about the Fulkerson Prize can be found at: MOS information and AMS information.

The Fulkerson Prize Committee consists of

  • Michele Conforti (Dipartimento di Matematica, Universita' di Padova, chair)
  • Friedrich Eisenbrand (Department of Mathematics, EPFL, Lausanne)
  • Egon Schulte (Department of Mathematics, Northeastern University, Boston)

Please send your nominations (including reference to the nominated article and an evaluation of the work) by

February 15th, 2015

to the chair of the committee. Electronic submissions to conforti@math.unipd.it are preferred.
