The article presents the winners and finalists in the Transportation Science and Logistics Section Dissertation Prize Competition, the oldest and most prestigious competition for doctoral dissertations in the transportation science and logistics area. The first haft of the dissertation Supply Chain Robustness and Reliability: Models and Algorithms, by Lawrence Snyder is concerned with models for robust supply chain design. In the second half of the dissertation, a new approach was presented to supply chain design that attempts to choose facility locations so that if a distribution center becomes unavailable, the resulting cost of operating the system is not excessive. One salient characteristic of the dissertation Performance and Analysis of Spot Truck-Load Procurement Markets Using Sequential Auctions, by Miguel Figliozzi is the use of sequential auctions to model an ongoing transportation market. The research Improving Regional Transportation System Performance Through Increased Suburban Intermodalism: User Cost Modeling Approach by Jeffrey Michael Casello presents a combination of economics, spatial analysis and transportation modeling to analyze the effects of increased intermodalism on transportation system performance.
