GOR Dissertation Prize
The GOR Dissertation Award honors outstanding dissertations in the field of Operations Research and is awarded by the German Society for Operations Research, the professional society for the scientific field of Operations Research and Mathematical Optimization. In Ms. Sudhoff Santo's thesis "Ordinal Costs in Multi-objective Combinatorial Optimization" ordinal costs are studied in general combinatorial problems and in matroid problems. Ordinal costs are used whenever a property is not numerically measurable, but can only be sorted into ordered categories. Examples are the safety of roads, the nutri-score or Olympic medals.
