IMS Fellows:
Philip Protter wrote an article calling for more diversity in our Fellows nominations in the latest Bulletin:
A candidate for the IMS Fellowship 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 to check this before you start). The nomination deadline is January 31, 2019. For nomination requirements, see

Harry C. Carver Award:
