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. EURO will pay the registration fee for one representative of each paper. 


The purpose of the prize is to distinguish the best papers published in EJOR. General criteria for the evaluation of the papers are:

  • the scientific quality of the paper;
  • the originality of the paper;
  • the relevance to Operational Research.

Detailed information is given in the guidelines.
