SMS Best Conference Paper Prize for Practice Implications

This award was inaugurated in 2007 following the initiative of the Strategy Practice Interest Group. Nominated authors are invited to submit a full version of their submitted proposal for consideration by the selection committee. These papers are reviewed and 5 finalists are named prior to the conference. The selection committee determines the winner to be announced during the conference.

The primary criterion for this prize is practitioner relevance. At the margin some weight may also be given to practitioner (co-) authorship or research sponsorship and funding.

The Prize for the best conference paper for practice implications consists of a US$ 1000 cash award. The winner is also presented with a certificate and recognition at the conference, usually during the awards luncheon.

Duncan Angwin and Sotirios Paroutis served as co-chairs of the 2011 selection committee.
