Paper and People’s Choice Awards

Each year, the Program Committee selects several papers for the Outstanding Paper Award. This award is based on the research paper’s potential impact on management practice and rigor of analysis.

Annually, conference attendees select this award from among presentations and research sketches. The award is based on individual attendees’ own criteria for high impact work.
