A Guideline for Selecting ASSMO Awardees

b) Any member of ASSMO can nominate a candidate for the award. The nomination should be accompanied by a one-page
    statement describing his/her academic and professional records, contributions in SMO research and/or applications in industry.
    His or her contribution to ASSMO should be also mentioned.
c) Application is closed three months before the ACSMO.
