Apply for the Innovation in Analytics Award

Innovation in Analytics Award

Call for Applications
Sponsored by INFORMS Section on Analytics
The purpose of the Innovation in Analytics Award is to recognize creative and unique developments, applications or combinations of analytical techniques. The prize promotes the awareness of the value of analytics techniques in unusual applications, or in creative combination to provide unique insights and/or business value. The prize is not meant to recognize strictly theoretical advances, though theoretical advances might be an enabler to innovative applications. Similarly, the prize is not focused on implementation value created, but such value creation might add credibility to the innovation.

Applicants must submit a brief (500-1,000 word) summary of their work by January 31, 2012.

2011-2012 Committee Chair

Judging Criteria
  • Level of uniqueness, creativity, value and (potential) contribution of the analytical techniques developed
  • Innovation in any of the three dimensions of analytics: descriptive, predictive or prescriptive. Submissions that span more than one dimension of analytics are preferred
  • Implemented approaches are preferred but not required; to the extent implemented savings are claimed in the submission, the judging panel will seek verification of the implementation
  • Submissions that have the potential for more widespread use will be given added consideration, but particularly clever innovations with narrow focus are also highly valued
