Gerd Finke (obituary)
I'm very sad to announce the death of Gerd Finke, active member of ECCO since the very beginning. Please find below an obituary written by a group of colleagues.
Silvano Martello

To say that Gerd Finke was a leading researcher in Operations Research would be an understatement. His scientific career started with M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics received from the University of Kiel, Germany, in 1969. Then his life path made him join the Faculty of Engineering of the Technical University of Nova Scotia, Halifax, Canada, where he served in succession as an assistant professor, associate professor and professor, respectively, in the Departments of Applied Mathematics and Industrial Engineering until 1988. Finally, he joined as a professor of Operations Research the Department of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at the University Joseph Fourier in Grenoble, France, where he was responsible for the graduate studies in OR (1988-2006). He initiated scientific vocations of many students working in Operations Research in France and worldwide. Gerd's
tireless efforts earned him not only numerous and prestigious awards, but the respect of many people who were inspired by his commitment to science, research, personal engagement and determination. He was one of those people who have had such a profound impact on the future direction of science and generations of scientists. He had an international reputation and friends all over the world.
