Each year examples of OR/MS and advanced analytics at its best are presented with the chance to compete for the prestigious Franz Edelman Award, which highlights the significant, verifiable, and quantifiable impact of the field in practice.


We encourage you to submit your work for an opportunity to become a part of excellence spanning more than 40 years.

About the Competition


The purpose of the Edelman competition is to bring forward, recognize, and reward outstanding examples of operations research, management science, and advanced analytics in practice. The prize is awarded for implemented work, not for a submitted paper or for the presentation describing the work. The client organization that uses the winning work receives a prize citation and is inducted into the Edelman Academy.  The authors of the winning work receive a cash award and are designated as Edelman Laureates. All finalists receive the opportunity to publish their papers in INFORMS' prestigious journal, Interfaces.
