Travel Awardees at JSM

Eight of this year’s IMS travel award recipients were able to come to the Presidential Address and Awards session at JSM (in total there were 10 Hannan Graduate Student awards and 11 New Researcher awards this year, funding travel to a wide range of meetings). They are pictured below with Xiao-Li Meng. More photos from JSM Denver in the September 2019 issue. Read comments from some of this year’s travel award recipients here.

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
