Abstract : The first DoD-sponsored logistics research conference addressed itself principally to improving communications among researchers with the ultimate aim of directing increasing attention to more significant problems of management and the implementation of research findings. The conference brought together 135 persons from in-house research organizations, civilian universities and non-profit organizations who are performing logistics research for some component of Defense. An opening general session was concerned with an appraisal of logistics research and a review of the management of such research. The conference then broke down into 9 panel sessions, each addressing itself to a major logistics management area. The last day of the conference was devoted to panel reports.
