The EDSM (EURO Distinguished Service Medal Award) is for recognition of distinguished service to the Association of European OR Societies (EURO) and to the profession of OR. The award will be officially delivered during the 2013 EURO Conference (Rome, July 1-4, 2013).
The EDSM 2013 will be given to an individual who has served the European OR community and the profession effectively for many years. No currently active officer of EURO (Executive Committee member, EDSM 2013 jury member, Organizing and Programme Committees Chairpersons of the EURO 2013 Conference) is eligible.
The laureate will receive an award, a diploma, and will be invited to all future EURO Conferences without payment of the registration fees.

The decision of the jury will be communicated to the EDSM laureate by March 5, 2013.
