NOTE: The 2006 prize winners have been anounced, see citations.
The Fulkerson Prize Committee invites nominations for the Delbert Ray
Fulkerson Prize, sponsored jointly by the Mathematical Programming
Society and the American Mathematical Society. Up to three awards of
US$1500 each are presented at each (triennal) International Symposium
of the MPS. The Fulkerson Prize is for outstanding papers in the area
of discrete mathematics. The Prize will be awarded at the 19th
International Symposium on Mathematical Programming to be held in Rio,
Brazil from July 30 to August 4, 2006.
Eligible papers should represent the final publication of the main
result(s) and should have been published in a recognized journal, or
in a comparable, wellrefereed volume intended to publish final
publications only, during the six calendar years preceding the year of
the Symposium (thus, from January 2000 through December 2005). The
prizes will be given for single papers, not series of papers or books,
and in the event of joint authorship the prize will be divided.
The term `discrete mathematics' is interpreted broadly and is intended
to include graph theory, networks, mathematical programming, applied
combinatorics, applications of discrete mathematics to computer
science, and related subjects. While research work in these areas is
usually not far removed from practical applications, the judging of
papers will be based only on their mathematical quality and
significance.
