Fulkerson Prize 2018  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 23nd International Symposium on Mathematical
Programming to be held in Bordeaux, France on July 16, 2018.
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 2012 through December 2017). 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
