There is still time to nominate your outstanding colleagues and collaborators IMS Fellowship or for the Carver medal.
A candidate for the IMS Fellowship [see Philip Protter’s article here]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/.
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/.
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. This travel award is available to 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 2013–18) 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 (apart from the IMS New Researcher’s Conference, which is funded separately).
Applicants for both these travel awards must be members of IMS, though joining at the time of application is allowed (student membership is free, and new graduate membership discounted!). The application deadline for both is February 1, 2019.
See https://www.imstat.org/ims-awards/ims-hannan-graduate-student-travel-award/ and https://www.imstat.org/ims-awards/ims-new-researcher-travel-award/ for details.
