The VeRoLog DDP jury will only consider PhD theses in Operational Research defended between January, 1st and December, 31st of the preceding year. Nominations are NOT restricted to members of societies that belong to EURO.
To be considered, a dissertation should be nominated by the supervisor of the thesis (one of them in case of multiple supervisors).
