The Annual ISL Best Doctoral Paper Award is designed to recognise and encourage new ideas and targeted research in the field of logistics and supply chain management. Doctoral candidates are hence invited to submit appropriate research papers. The paper will be reviewed by the members of the PhD Award Committee, who will consider aspects such as originality, contribution, and quality of presentation. The prize will be awarded at the conference. The winner will receive $100 (or equivalent) and a certificate. The conditions are:

1. The student must be PhD-candidate at the time of abstract submission.

2. The submitted paper must report on original research conducted mainly by the PhD candidate.

3. The paper must be presented by the student at the conference.

4. The student must be the first author.

Following the conference, a brief personal profile of the winner should be sent for inclusion on the ISL website.
