This year Rick So from the University of California Irvine chaired our Student Paper Competition. We received 48 papers. The papers were judged by 100 referees with four referees per paper. Based on the referee evaluations, six finalists were chosen. These finalists were invited to present their paper at two sessions at the POMS Annual Conference in Houston. Each paper was allotted 20 minutes for the presentation, followed by a 10-minute Q&A session in front of a jury. Presentation quality was taken into account to decide the first and second prize winners, which were announced at the business meeting on Saturday May 5th. The jury was composed of Atalay Atasu, Vinayak Deshpande, H. Sebastian Heese and Dorothee Honhon.
