The Applied Probability Society seeks to identify and honor outstanding papers in the field of applied probability, that are written by a student. We define applied probability broadly, as any paper related to the modeling, analysis, and control of stochastic systems. The paper’s contribution may lie in the formulation of new mathematical models, in the development of new mathematical or computational methods, in the innovative application of existing methods, or in the opening of new application domains. There will be a first prize, and possibly some additional finalist papers, depending on the number and quality of submissions.

Deadline for submissions: July 1, 2017.
