EURO Award for the Best EJOR Paper

In 2012 EURO introduced 3 new annual awards for papers published by EJOR: best survey paper; best application paper; and best theory/methodology. Winners for each category will be selected by a jury and an award of €1,000 will be presented at the following EURO-k or IFORS conference.
