Nominations Sought for COPSS Awards

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in Latest call-outs to members

The Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies (COPSS) seeks nominations for its annual awards which recognise outstanding members of the statistical profession.

The awards ceremony forms part of the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM), which in 2014 will be held in Boston, Massachusetts, 2-7 August.

Nominations are an important part of the process, and everyone can contribute — from the newly minted PhD graduate to the pharmaceutical statistician to the longtime professor. All statisticians see excellence in their mentors, colleagues, and management and it’s important to single out those persons who make exceptional contributions to the profession. So take a few minutes, review the various awards on tap this year, and see if you can identify worthy individuals.

The following awards are being presented:

  • The Fisher Lectureship, awarded yearly for outstanding contributions to aspects of statistics and probability that closely relate to the scientific collection and interpretation of data. The recipient delivers a lecture during JSM.
  • The Presidents’ Award, presented yearly in recognition of outstanding contributions to the statistics profession, typically granted to an individual who has not yet reached his or her 41st birthday.
  • The Elizabeth L Scott Award, presented biennially (even years) to an individual who has helped foster opportunities in statistics for women.

For detailed award criteria and nominating procedures, see the COPSS website.
