The International Prize in Statistics — one of the highest honors in statistics — is awarded every two years to an individual or team “for major achievements using statistics to advance science, technology, and human welfare.” This prestigious award is stewarded by the five major statistical organizations working cooperatively to develop it: IMS, the American Statistical Association, International Biometric Society, International Statistical Institute, and Royal Statistical Society. 

Nominations are invited

Nominations for the 2023 International Prize in Statistics are open. When choosing a nominee for the prize, consider the following points:

• The prize will be awarded for a single work or body of work, rather than “lifetime achievement.” Not only should powerful and original ideas be recognized by the prize, but also contributions that led to breakthroughs in other disciplines or works with important practical effects on the world.

• Generally, the prize will be awarded to individuals, but in some cases, groups of individuals working on similar ideas — or even teams of individuals or organizations — could be recognized.

• The recipient(s) must be living at the time of selection for the award.

• The 2023 International Prize in Statistics will be announced in early 2023 and presented at the ISI World Statistics Congress in July 2023.
