The INFORMS Society for Marketing Science seeks nominations for its Fellows award; Deadline 15 Jan 2017

Call for Nominations

ISMS Marketing Science Fellows 2017

The ISMS Fellows selection committee invites nominations for the 2017 ISMS Fellows award. Nominations should be emailed to Chakravarthi Narasimhan (, who is the current chair of the selection committee. Please use the subject heading Fellows Nomination. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2017.

The ISMS Fellow Award recognizes cumulative long term contribution to the mission of ISMS. The mission of ISMS is “…to foster the development, dissemination, and implementation of knowledge, basic and applied research, and science and technologies that improve the understanding and practice of marketing.” While the ISMS Fellow award recognizes past accomplishments and is an honor, it is also meant to encourage responsibility. ISMS Fellows are expected to provide leadership and support for the ISMS community. For a list of ISMS Fellows click on the link

A nominee for the Fellow Award must have been a regular member or retired member of ISMS or the TIMS Marketing College for at least 12 years cumulative. The committee evaluates contributions on four dimensions: research (quality and quantity), education (books, monographs, and doctoral dissertations), service to ISMS and INFORMS (editorial positions, conference chair), and practice. More details on these can be found here

or by contacting the chair.

Contributions in all four categories will be evaluated in a compensatory way. Truly outstanding contributions in one category will also suffice. With rare exception, the nominee’s contributions should extend over a period of years and not be limited to a single result. Except for very rare cases, because the award recipient is named an ISMS Fellow, some service to ISMS is a prerequisite for all nominees.

Nomination letters should be accompanied by the nominee’s current vita as well as significant details supporting the nomination. For research this additional information might include indications of impact such as follow-on work, use in doctoral seminars, impact on the practice of marketing, etc. For education, it would be helpful to list doctoral students as well as any publications that have a strong educational content. For practice it would be useful to get someone within the organization to comment on the impact of the application. Service contributions should be self-evident, but it would still be useful to list them. Please limit the nomination letter to three pages or less. This page constraint does not include the current vita or the supporting information.

The 2017 ISMS Marketing Science Fellows will be announced at the 39th Marketing Science Conference in USC, Los Angeles, on Friday, June 9, 2017.
