CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
The EURO Gold Medal is the highest distinction within OR in Europe. It is conferred on a prominent person for an outstanding contribution to Operational Research. The award will be officially bestowed at the opening plenary session of the EURO XXVI Conference in Rome, if there is a suitable candidate.
The EURO Gold Medal is awarded for a body of work in operational research, preferably published over a period of several years. Although recent work is not excluded, care should be taken to allow the contribution to stand the test of time. The potential prize recipient should have a recognized stature in the European OR community. Significance, innovation, depth, and scientific excellence should be stressed.
To emphasize the European flavour of the Award, all societies are strongly urged not to propose a candidate from their own country. No currently active officer of EURO (Executive Committee member, EURO Gold Medal jury member, Organising and Program Committee Chairperson of the EURO XXVI Conference) is eligible.
Nominations for the 2013 EURO Gold Medal can come from EURO member national societies, the previous EURO Gold Medal laureates and jury chairs.
Nominations should be sent to:
Faculty of Mathematics
University of Duisburg-Essen
Nominations, including a detailed CV of the nominee and a written justification for the nomination should be sent before 31st March, 2013.
