The 2014 DDA-LOG is open to all who will have completed their doctoral work in a field related to functions within the logistics and supply chain area between January 1, 2013 and August 1, 2014. If you have already accepted a position at a college or university, you may still apply. The deadline for the present edition is August 15, 2014.

To be considered, a dissertation should be nominated by the supervisor of the Ph.D. thesis (one of them in case of multiple supervisors). The supervisor of the dissertation is asked to provide the jury with the following six documents:

1.- The text of the dissertation in PDF format,

2.- An extended abstract (up to 5 pages) of the dissertation; this abstract should be written in English,

3.- If the dissertation is not written in English, a paper in English authored (or co-authored) by the author of the dissertation and describing the core ideas of the thesis. This paper should preferably have been published in or submitted to an international journal.

4.- Nomination letters (or reports) from two referees selected by the dissertation supervisor, supporting the submission and stating their assessment of why the thesis should win the award.

5.- A certificate of completion or letter from their current graduate school or university office signed by the university official (ex: dean, director, chancellor’s office, etc.). No personal letters or emails from faculty or referees can be substituted for this as compliance.

6.- An up-to-date CV of the candidate, including a list of publications.

No nomination will be considered without these items.

All information should be sent in electronic form to the chairman of the jury, Eduardo Betanzo Quezada betanzoe [@], using a compressed format (e.g. zip).
