Overview of Analytics Society sponsored awards

The Analytics Society of INFORMS sponsors the following awards:

Innovative Applications in Analytics Award. Co-sponsored with Caterpillar, the IAA Award recognizes creative and unique developments, applications or combinations of analytical techniques used in practice. The 2016 winning entry, “An Analytics Approach to the Clock Drawing Test for Cognitive Impairment” from MIT, was given as a reprise presentation at the INFORMS Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tenn.

Student Analytical Scholar Case Study Competition. Co-sponsored with SAS, the Student Analytical Scholar Competition is a scholarship program that sends the winning recipient to the Annual INFORMS Conference on Business Analytics and Operations Research. The program will again recognize one outstanding student who would like to learn more about the practice of analytics at the conference in Las Vegas in April 2017. The scholarship covers the cost of attending the event and additional networking opportunities. The deadline to apply is Feb. 13, 2017. For more information, visit the competition website.

Syngenta Crop Challenge. Co-sponsored with Syngenta, the Syngenta Crop Challenge engages teams toward creative, effective solutions to a common global problem: how to feed a growing planet population with stressed resources. The competition involves a problem description and data set that teams can download and extend toward a proposed best mix of varieties to plant. Competition judging will be based on quantitative results that justify the selection, a clear description of the methodology and theory used, and references or citations used. Entries must be submitted by Jan. 16, 2017. For more information, see the challenge website.
