College of Supply Chain Management

Dear Colleagues,

For the fourth year in a row, the POMS College of Supply Chain Management is conducting a mentorship initiative on the day preceding the POMS conference, during our mini conference (April 23, 2020). The goal of the initiative is to provide a platform for interested members to meet other senior members (as mentors) to seek their advice about career planning, research agenda, work-life balance, etc.

We invite members of the College of Supply Chain Management, who will attend the 2020 POMS conference in Minneapolis, MN, to sign up to be paired up with a mentor or a mentee.

We will do our best to pair the interested parties based on interests, then we will invite you to connect in the evening during our College of SCM dinner. As we did last year, we will contact you after the conference to get your feedback and suggestions for improvement.

The Google Form to fill out is available at: POMS 2020 SCM College Mentoring Initiative

The deadline to fill out the form is April 10, 2020.

We look forward to seeing you in Minneapolis!
Marcus Bellamy, Dorothee Honhon, & Chris Tang

This year Georgia Perakis from MIT with co-chairs Dorothee Honhon from the University of Texas at Dallas and Pelin Pekgün from the University of South Carolina chaired our Student Paper Competition. We received 38 papers. The papers were judged by 12 referees with two referees per paper. Note that MIT-affiliated papers were handled by the competition co-chairs and judged by non-MIT affiliated referees to avoid any conflicts of interest. Based on the referee evaluations, six finalists were chosen. These finalists were invited to present their paper at two sessions at the POMS Annual Conference in Washington, DC. Each paper was allotted 20 minutes for the presentation, followed by a 10-minute Q&A session in front of a jury. Presentation quality was taken into account to decide the first and second prize winners, which were announced at the business meeting on Saturday May 4th. The jury was composed of Basak Kalkanci, Ken Moon, Pelin Pekgün, Morvarid Rahmani, Wei Sun and Sean Willems.
All six finalists were awarded up to $500 of support for out-of-pocket expenses and complementary conference registration for the 2019 Annual POMS conference.
