The Transportation Science and Logistics Section of INFORMS is in pursuit of research papers that make substantial contributions to our field. The deadline for best paper submissions is July 1, 2013, with additional information available here. Below are some of the highlights on the application process.
A paper is eligible if it is written in English and if it has been published during the last three (3) years prior to the submission deadline. All topics related to the field of transportation science and logistics will be considered.
To submit a paper for the 2013 competition, one of the authors must send the paper, along with a short letter (maximum 2 pages) describing the merits of the paper (both in electronic PDF format) to Ann Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org before July 1, 2013.
As a member of the committee, I would like to encourage you to submit your top research paper. I am especially hoping for a great showing of Facility Logistics papers.
