Jacques Carlier
Jacques Carlier was born in Paris, France on 1949 September 25. He receives the degrees of Computer Science in 1972 and Mathematics in 1974, MSc (DEA) in Operations Research in 1973, PhD (Doctorat de troisième cycle) on Disjunctive Scheduling Problems in 1975 and PhD (Doctorat d’état) on Resource Constrained Project Scheduling in 1984, all from University of Paris VI. From 1974 to 1985, he was assistant-Professor at the same University. Since 1985 he is Professor at Compiègne University of Technology, emeritus since 2015. He was teaching Operations Research, Mathematics and Computer Science. His research interests concern Combinatorial Optimization and in particular scheduling problems, telecommunication networks and network reliability. During his carrier, he was the supervisor of more than 30 PhD students. His works on scheduling are well known. They include methods for the one machine sequencing problem, the m-machine scheduling problem, the job-shop, the RCPSP and the financing problem. He is member of the editorial board of EJOR and RAIRO and has published 60 papers in international journals.
Rolf H. Möhring
Rolf H. Möhring received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics with the RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany, in 1973 and 1975, respectively. Since 1987, he has been a Professor for Applied Mathematics and Computer Science with the Berlin University of Technology, Berlin, Germany, where he has founded and led the research group Combinatorial Optimization and Graph Algorithms. He has held earlier positions as an Associate and an Assistant Professor with the University of Bonn, the University of Hildesheim, and the RWTH Aachen University. Since 2016, he has been a Professor Emeritus with TU Berlin, Berlin, and since 2014, he has been a Honorary Professor with the Beijing University of Technology, Beijing, China, where he serves in the Board of Directors of the Beijing Institute for Scientific and Engineering Computing (BISEC). Part of his research has been done in DFG Research Center Matheon, Berlin, where he was a Scientist in charge of Application Area logistics, traffic, and telecommunication networks. His current research interests include graph algorithms, combinatorial optimization, scheduling, logistics, and industrial applications. Dr. Möhring was a recipient of the Scientific Award of the German Operations Research Society and the EURO Gold Medal of the European Association of Operational Research Societies. He has been the Chair of the German Operations Research Society and the Mathematical Programming Society.
Erwin Pesch
Erwin Pesch studied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Technical University Darmstadt. He worked at the Commerzbank AG and later as assistant professor at the University in Maastricht (Netherlands) and as professor in the Institute of Economics of the University in Bonn. Currently, he is a full professor at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of the University in Siegen and director of the Center for Advanced Studies in Management at the HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management. He holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics and a Habilitation in Business Administration. His research areas are mainly in Logistics, Scheduling and  Project Management, and Personnel Planning many of which are closely related to different industrial projects. He received a number of distinctions, e.g., the Copernicus Prize (together with J. Blazewicz) jointly awarded by the national science foundations DFG and FNP. He is author or co-author of 6 books about 200 papers in many international journals. He is area or associate editor of 13 scientific journals, has frequently been a keynote or plenary speaker at international conferences, and was responsible for the organization of the ECCO 2001 and the EURO 2009 conference in Bonn that attracted 2500 delegates.
