Publications

EURO publishes 4 scholarly journals:[4]

  • European Journal of Operational Research
  • EURO Journal on Computational Optimization
  • EURO Journal on Decision Processes
  • EURO Journal on Transportation and Logistics

and the book series EURO Advanced Tutorials in Operational Research.

Awards

EURO bestows a number of prizes:[5]

  • EURO Gold Medal. The highest distinction within OR in Europe is conferred for an outstanding contribution to operational research.
  • Distinguished Service Medal Award, a recognition of distinguished service to the association and to the profession of OR.
  • Excellence in Practice Award, to recognize outstanding accomplishments in the practice of operational research.
  • Doctoral Dissertation Award, to recognize the OR contributions of PhD students.
  • EURO Award for the Best EJOR Papers, to recognize the best articles published in the European Journal of Operational Research.

Conferences

EURO organizes a number of different conferences and events throughout each year:

  • The EURO-k Conferences are broadly oriented and can be organized in cooperation with other associations such as INFORMS.[6]
  • EURO Mini Conferences [7] have the objective of assembling a limited number of specialists around a specific theme. At most two EURO Mini Conferences can be supported each year.
  • EWG Meetings are organized at least once a year by each EURO Working Group.

Working Groups

EURO Working Groups are the organizational framework provided by EURO to groups of researchers and practitioners interested in a specific operational research topic. Each EURO Working Group holds at least one meeting per year, organizes sessions at conferences, publishes special issues of OR journals, and organizes conferences or seminars.[8]

Education

EURO organizes educational meetings throughout each year:

  • EURO PhD Schools are an instrument to encourage the organization of post-graduate education initiatives for PhD students under a school format.
  • EURO Summer/Winter Institutes provide an opportunity for around 20 early stage researchers to meet for about two weeks. Participants present their material, discuss it with others and with a handful of specially invited senior experts in the field, and finally prepare a paper to be considered for inclusion in a feature issue of EJOR.
  • ORP³ Conferences are a forum promoting scientific and social exchanges between members of the future generation of Operational Research in academic research. They are annual or bi-annual meetings of early stage OR researchers organized by early stage researchers in an OR group in Europe.
