Nominate for IMS Awards

It’s time to think about nominating your outstanding colleagues and collaborators for these IMS awards: Tweedie award, Carver medal and IMS Fellowship.

The Tweedie New Researcher Award funds travel to present the Tweedie New Researcher Invited Lecture at the IMS New Researchers Conference. It was created in memory of Richard Tweedie, who mentored many young colleagues. New researchers (who received their PhD in 2013–2018), who are members of IMS, are eligible. The nomination deadline is December 1, 2018. See https://www.imstat.org/ims-awards/tweedie-new-researcher-award/.

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/.

A candidate for the IMS Fellowship [see Philip Protter’s article]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 erg@imstat.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/.

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!
