IMS Awards: Nominate or apply now!

Nominate for Carver Award or Fellowship

The Carver Medal was created by the IMS in honor of Harry C. Carver, for exceptional service specifically to the IMS. It is open to any IMS member who has not previously been elected President. Deadline February 1, 2018.

IMS Fellows demonstrate distinction in research in statistics or probability, by publication of independent work of merit; alternatively, as well-established leaders whose contributions to the field of statistics or probability other than original research is judged of equal value; or whose work has contributed greatly to the utility of and the appreciation of these areas. Candidates for fellowship should have been members of the IMS for at least two years. Deadline January 31, 2018.

Apply for a Travel Award

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, and are for 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 2012–17) 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. Deadline February 1, 2018.

Welcome!

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!
