E. Grosvenor Plowman Award
From among those papers accepted for presentation at the Academic Research Symposium (formerly known as the Educators' Conference), the best research is selected by the Editorial Review Panel and awarded the distinguished E. Grosvenor Plowman Award. Plowman recipients are invited to present their research at the Academic Research Symposium and recognized for their contributions.
The Plowman Award is given in honor of E. Grosvenor Plowman, a lifetime supporter of both CSCMP and the logistics profession. Since its inception over thirty years ago, the award has been offered annually.
