BEST PAPER PRIZE for 2007

CMS Best Paper Prize is awarded annually by the editors to a selected publication during the year conveying the quality and scope of the Journal.

J. Thenie, Ch van Delft, and J-F Vial:"Automatic formulation of stochastic programs via an algebraic modeling language", Computational Management Science, 2007, Volume 4, Number 1, pp 17-40

The above paper has been awarded the best paper prize for 2007 by the editors for its attempt to convince stochastic programming users that simple computational tools may facilitate their application.The paper presents an open source tool, based on the modelling language AMPL, that automatically generates the deterministic equivalent of stochastic programming.

The editors and publisher warmly congratulate the authors.
