The University of Illinois is delighted to announce the winners of the 2012 Paul D. Converse award. The Paul D. Converse Award was established in 1946 to honor those who have contributed significantly to marketing theory and to the advancement of science in marketing. Converse Award recipients are selected on the merit of their contributions to the field of marketing.

V. Kumar, Georgia State University
Christine Moorman, Duke University
A. Parasuraman, University of Miami
Roland Rust, University of Maryland
Gerard Tellis, University of Southern California
The Converse awards are bestowed at a weekend-long symposium, which includes presentations by the winners and a discussion of the winner’s contribution to be led by a discussant of the winner’s choice. The dates for the Eighteenth Paul D. Converse Symposium are April 26-29, 2012, to be held at the College of Business at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
