Ruth Williams and Martin Reiman receive von Neumann Theory Prize

The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) has selected Ruth Williams and Martin Reiman to jointly receive the 2016 INFORMS Von Neumann Theory Prize.

The John von Neumann Theory Prize is awarded annually to a scholar (or scholars in the case of joint work) for fundamental, sustained contributions to theory in operations research and the management sciences. The award was presented at a ceremony on November 13 at the INFORMS Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee.

Ruth and Marty were selected in recognition of their fundamental work on the theory and applications of stochastic networks and their diffusion approximations.

The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) is the largest society in the world for professionals in the field of operations research (O.R.), management science, and analytics.

We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
