CORS Student Paper Competition

Deadline: April 1st  

Each year CORS conducts a student paper competition to recognize the contribution of a paper either directly to the field of operational research through the development of methodology or to another field through the application of operational research. The competition serves to showcase the high quality of OR education in Canada as well as the excellence of the new generation of operational researchers. Prizes are awarded in two categories: Undergraduate and Open.


The applicant must be enrolled as a full-time student in a Canadian institution, in an undergraduate, masters, or PhD program during the school year 2020–2021. Canadians who are studying outside of Canada are also eligible. Papers where all applicants are undergraduates may be submitted to either category: Open or Undergraduate, but not to both. Papers where some authors are graduate students must be submitted to the Open category. MBA students (and other specialized master students) must submit to the Open category with their applied projects. Published papers are eligible for the competition only if their initial submission date (for publication) is after the previous year's CORS Annual Conference.

Volunteer Opportunities

Canadian Operational Research Society is looking for volunteers to help run this year’s conference (website) which is happening virtually on June 7-10, 2021. Volunteer duties include:

  • Setting up the logistics of the virtual conference platform (e.g., Zoom rooms)
  • Being present during the conference to help with virtual way-finding
  • Providing technical support to session chairs throughout the conference

This is an excellent opportunity to help run a professional event and to meet pioneers in the field of Operations Research.
