Award Opportunities

E. Grosvenor Plowman Award
Only full-length research papers will be considered for the E. Grosvenor Plowman Award, which is awarded to the best research paper of the conference. Extended research abstracts are also welcomed, but priority in the final program will be given to full-length papers, and space for abstracts could therefore be limited. Learn more about this award.

Teaching Innovation Award
The teaching innovation track also openly invites submissions, both full length or extended abstracts. These may include research papers on pedagogical techniques or methods, applied teaching case studies, innovative teaching methods, or experiential papers describing the use of new tools. Teaching submissions will be evaluated for originality, clarity, and value of discussion of learning outcomes. Papers submitted to the teaching innovations track will be considered for the Innovative Supply Chain Teaching Award.
