Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In July 2022, I received the EURO Gold medal at the 32nd EURO Conference held in Espoo, Finland. This paper is based on the presentation I made at the medal award ceremony. It covers 10 topics on which I have worked throughout my career. These are the seriation problem, rotating work schedules, deterministic vehicle routing, stochastic vehicle routing, examination timetabling, districting, waste management, metro network design, green transportation, and humanitarian logistics.
