New IMS Fellows

The IMS Committee on Fellows announces 19 new Fellows for 2013. The Fellows will be presented at JSM Montreal, in the IMS Presidential Address session on Monday, August 5, from 8:00pm in room CC-517ab. All JSM attendees are welcome at this session, and at the reception afterwards.

Graciela Boente from Universidad de Buenos Aires, for her research in robust statistics and estimation, and for outstanding service to the statistical community.

Anton Bovier from Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität, Bonn, for his research in the theory of random media.

Amarjit Singh Budhiraja from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, for his research in stochastic analysis and its impact on other disciplines including financial mathematics, network analysis, and stochastic modeling in biology.

Aurore Delaigle from University of Melbourne, for her research contributions in non-parametric function estimation, measurement error problems, and functional data; and her service to the statistical community.

Frank den Hollander from Leiden University, The Netherlands, for his research in probability and mathematical physics, and especially large deviation theory,

Pablo Ferrari from Universidad de Buenos Aires, for his fundamental contributions to exclusion processes and quasi-stationary distributions.

Allan Gut from Uppsala University, Sweden, for his contributions to probability theory, in particular renewal theory and stopped random walks.

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
