The designation of Fellow is awarded to an active DSI member who: (1) is an eminent scholar in the field of decision sciences, and (2) is actively involved in the activities of the Institute beyond attending and making presentations at conferences.   This designation is for recognition only and does not constitute a class of membership or any other official status in the Institute.

To qualify as a Fellow, the member must have distinguished herself/himself as an eminent scholar in her/his field, as evidenced by substantive research contributions. Typical dimensions employed by the committee to evaluate such contributions include high-quality publications, research awards, citation counts, editorial positions, keynote speeches at academic conferences, and invitations by research universities to present research colloquia.

An active member of the Institute is one who has been a leader and contributor to the vision, mission and activities of the Institute.  Criteria employed to assess the level of such activity include conference leadership, DSI committee involvement, and DSI board membership.

Fellows are nominated by Members of the Institute, recommended by the Fellows Committee, and elected by the Institute’s Board of Directors. A nominee for Fellow must not receive more than two negative votes to be recommended by the Fellows Committee and must be approved by two-thirds vote of the Board of Directors to be elected. No more than 0.4 percent of the Regular membership may be elected as Fellows in any one year.

CONGRATULATIONS to Kathryn Stecke, University of Texas at Dallas, Morgan Swink, Texas Christian University and Srinivas Talluri, Michigan State University, all designated a DSI Fellow at the DSI 2019 Annual Conference on November 24, 2019 in New Orleans, LA.
