The COPSS Awards are multi-society awards and as such, are presented at the Joint Statistical Meetings each year. In 2017, four awards will be presented: the Fisher Award and Lectureship, the Presidents’ Award, the F. N. David Award, and the Snedecor Award.
The nomination deadline for the 2017 Fisher Award is December 15, 2016; the deadline for the other awards is January 15, 2017. Only the winner of the Fisher award is announced before the JSM award ceremony.
