EURO Gold Medal 2018 (Announcement)


  1. The EURO Gold Medal is the highest distinction within OR in Europe. It is conferred on a prominent person for an outstanding contribution to the development of OR. The award will be officially bestowed at the opening plenary session of the 29th European Conference on Operational Research in Valencia, if there is a suitable candidate.

  2. The EURO Gold Medal shall be awarded for a body of work in OR, preferably published over a period of several years. Although recent work should not be excluded, care should be taken to allow the contribution to stand the test of time.
