It’s time to think about nominating your outstanding colleagues and collaborators for these IMS awards: Tweedie award, Carver medal and IMS Fellowship.
The Tweedie New Researcher Award funds travel to present the Tweedie New Researcher Invited Lecture at the IMS New Researchers Conference. It was created in memory of Richard Tweedie, who mentored many young colleagues. New researchers (who received their PhD in 2013–2018), who are members of IMS, are eligible. The nomination deadline is December 1, 2018. See https://www.imstat.org/ims-awards/tweedie-new-researcher-award/.
Nominations are invited for the Carver Medal, created by the IMS in honor of Harry C. Carver, for exceptional service specifically to the IMS. All nominations must be received by February 1, 2019. Please visit https://www.imstat.org/ims-awards/harry-c-carver-medal/.
A candidate for the IMS Fellowship [see Philip Protter’s article]shall have demonstrated distinction in research in statistics or probability, by publication of independent work of merit. This qualification may be partly or wholly waived in the case of either a candidate of well-established leadership whose contributions to the field of statistics or probability other than original research shall be judged of equal value; or a candidate of well-established leadership in the application of statistics or probability, whose work has contributed greatly to the utility of and the appreciation of these areas. Candidates for fellowship should be members of IMS when nominated (you can email Elyse Gustafson firstname.lastname@example.org to check this before you start). The nomination deadline is January 31, 2019. For nomination requirements, see https://www.imstat.org/honored-ims-fellows/nominations-for-ims-fellow/.
