The German Society for Operations Research (GOR) awards outstanding young researchers in the field of Operations Research at its annual conference in Bern in 2021 with the

GOR Young Researchers Award 2021

– in cooperation with Fraunhofer ITWM, Kaiserslautern –

Prizes are awarded for outstanding young researchers in the field of Operations Research whose excellence is demonstrated among others by a publication in OR Spectrum or MMOR. Each prize is endowed with € 2,000. The award winners will be invited to report on their work at the conference. The award winners are exempt from the payment of the conference fee, travel and subsistence expenses up to € 500 can be reimbursed upon presentation of receipts. Furthermore, membership in the GOR is free of charge in the year of the award ceremony and in the following year.

Researcher of all disciplines who meet the following criteria will be considered:

  • The PhD was completed at most five years ago.
  • The publication in MMOR or OR Spectrum was finally accepted by the respective journal between 01.01.2019 and 31.03.2021.
  • The award winners should be able and willing to present their papers during the OR conference in Bern (31.08.2021 – 03.09.2021).
  • The award winners should submit an article about the work if possible in German for publication in the OR News before 01.09.2021.

Proposals are to be addressed exclusively to the chairman of the award committee, Prof. Dr. Alexander Martin, until April 30, 2021. Whereas self-applications are the rule, the journal editors, honorary GOR members, and winners of the GOR Scientific Research Award might explicitly contact young researchers to apply for the award. Only one application may be submitted per young researcher. Team applications are allowed.

The publication must be submitted in electronic form together with a curriculum vitae of the applicant.
