  1. The book “Network Flows: Theory, Algorithms and Applications” won the Lanchester Prize for 1993, which is one of the most prestigious international awards in Operations Research and Management Science and is given annually by INFORMS to the best publication of the year. The prize citation included – “In the last ten years, there has been an explosion of activity in which most of the fundamental algorithms for minimum cost network flows and related problems have been reworked and improved ….. . The authors have been among the leaders in this work. Now they have refined and integrated the most interesting and useful of the new results into a textbook that is admirable for its clear and elegant exposition, its completeness, its wealth of examples, and its extensive collection of suggested applications. This book is a well to which both students and researchers will return for instruction and inspiration. ….”
  2. The paper,”A Column Generation Approach to Radiation Therapy Treatment Planning using Aperture Modulation,”coauthored with H.E. Romeijn, J.F. Dempsey, and A. Kumar, won the 2003 Pierskalla Award given by INFORMS to the best paper in Health Applications presented at the INFORMS National Meeting.
  3. The paper,”Solving Real-Life Railroad Blocking Problems,” coauthored with K.C. Jha, and J. Liu won the 2006 Daniel H. Wagner Award given by INFORMS for Excellence in Operations Research Practice. This competitive prize emphasizes the quality and coherence of the analysis used in practice and the winning paper must emphasizing good writing, strong analytical content, and verifiable practice successes.
  4. The paper, “Exact and Heuristic Algorithms for the Weapon-Target Assignment Problem,” coauthored with K.C. Jha, A. Kumar, and J.B. Orlin won the 2007 Koopman Prize given by INFORMS for outstanding contribution to the Military Operations Research.
  5. Dr. Ahuja received the INFORMS Fellow award in 2008. The award was given for his contributions: “for algorithmic research in network optimization, for the development of innovative methods in transportation scheduling, and for his contributions to practice in the railroad industry.”
  6. Professor Ahuja is also taking a lead role in developing curriculum that will integrate information technology skills within the Industrial Engineering and Operations Research curriculum. His work on curriculum development in Industrial Engineering was selected as a Finalist (among two others) for the Innovations in Curriculum Award given by the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) in 2007.
