The Info-Metrics Institute is pleased to announce the creation of the Halbert L. White, Jr. prize in memory of one of the Institute's founding Board members who passed away on March 31, 2012.
The prize is intended to reward outstanding academic research by an early career scholar in the field of info-metrics and carries an award of $2000 to be conferred either to an individual or shared among joint recipients.
