Paper Awards

Each year, the Conference Committee selects several papers for the Best and Outstanding Paper Awards. These awards are based on the research paper’s potential impact on management practice and rigor of analysis. Additionally, conference attendees select the People’s Choice Paper Award from among presentations and research sketches. The award is based on individual attendees’ own criteria for high impact work.
