Nominate for Carver Award or Fellowship
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. Deadline February 1, 2018.
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. Deadline January 31, 2018.
Apply for a Travel Award
Applications are open for two types of travel awards. The IMS Hannan Graduate Student Travel Award funds travel and registration to attend (and possibly present a paper/poster at) an IMS sponsored or co-sponsored meeting, and are for IMS members who are graduate students (seeking a Masters or PhD degree) studying some area of statistical science or probability. If you are a New Researcher (awarded your PhD in 2012–17) looking for travel funds, you should apply for the IMS New Researcher Travel Award to fund travel, and possibly other expenses, to present a paper or a poster at an IMS sponsored or co-sponsored meeting. Deadline February 1, 2018.
