It’s that time of year again to consider who to nominate for the IMS awards.
The Carver Medal was created by the IMS in honor of Harry C. Carver, for exceptional service specifically to the IMS. It is open to any IMS member who has not previously been elected President. See http://imstat.org/awards/carver.html. Deadline February 1.
IMS Fellows demonstrate distinction in research in statistics or probability, by publication of independent work of merit; alternatively, as well-established leaders whose contributions to the field of statistics or probability other than original research is judged of equal value; or whose work has contributed greatly to the utility of and the appreciation of these areas. Candidates for fellowship should have been members of the IMS for at least two years. See http://imstat.org/awards/fellows.htm. Deadline January 31.
The Tweedie New Researcher Award funds travel to present the Tweedie New Researcher Invited Lecture at the IMS New Researchers Conference. The recipient will have received their PhD within five years. See http://imstat.org/awards/tweedie.html. Deadline December 1.
