The Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS) is proud to announce that Leif Döring, Professor of Probability Theory at the University of Mannheim, has been awarded the 2023 IMS Carver Medal for his exceptional service to the organization.

Professor Döring was selected for the award in recognition of his initiative and leadership in organizing the Bernoulli–IMS One World Symposium in August 2020, in response to the cancellation of the previously planned 10th World Congress due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Professor Döring and his committee created an innovative and highly successful virtual symposium, bringing together over 3,000 registered participants from around the world. The symposium provided an exceptional platform for new researchers and included exciting live talks, as well as over 600 video presentations.

Both the IMS and the Bernoulli Society praised Professor Döring’s achievement in their respective newsletters.

The Carver Medal is named in honor of Harry C. Carver, a founding editor of the Annals of Mathematical Statistics and one of the original IMS founders. Professor Döring’s dedication and service to the IMS community exemplify the values and legacy of Harry C. Carver, making him an outstanding choice for this prestigious award. Congratulations, Professor Döring!
