Dear Colleagues and Friends, it is with utmost pleasure that we wish to inform you that the 2020 edition of the competition of our Society for the Polish book on operational and systems research – although with a delay caused largely by the specific conditions of action during the epidemic time – comes to the end. You shall find below the final results of the competition. We shall be addressing separately all of the participants of the competition (whom we would like to thank very much, especially the proposers), and, of course the laureates.

Second edition of the Society’s competition for the best book on operational and systems research

Currently, second edition is being realised of the competition, launched by the Polish Operational and Systems Research Society, aiming to distinguish the best Polish books, dealing with operational and systems research. In the framework of the action of filing the proposals the list of 14 candidate books was established (List of books proposed). Now, conform to the regulations, concerning the competition, the Chapter of the competition is considering the selection of the eligible candidate books to be assessed. The final list and the assessments of the individual candidate books shall be announced before the next bi-annual BOS/SOR2020 conference, that is – before December 14th, 2020.

It is with special satisfaction that we note, first, a significant share of candidate books dealing with the classical subject matter and problems of operational research, this share being definitely higher than in the first edition of the competition. Secondly, and this is similar as in the previous edition, we do observe the participation of a number of academic centres in our competition, both in terms of the Authors and their affiliations, and in terms of the persons, sending the proposals.

We cordially encourage you to consult the List of books proposed and to sending us the comments and assessment of the candidate books addressed at konkurs.ptbois@ibspan.waw.pl.
