The Ethel Newbold Prize - call for nominations
The Ethel Newbold Prize is to be awarded biannually to an outstanding statistical scientist in early or mid-career for a body of work that represents excellence in research in mathematical statistics, and/or excellence in research that links developments in a substantive field to new advances in statistics. In any year in which the award is due, the prize will not be awarded unless the set of all nominations includes candidates from both genders. The award consists of the prize amount of 2500€ together with an award certificate. The awardee will be invited to present a talk at the following Bernoulli World Congress, Bernoulli-sponsored major conference, or ISI World Statistics Congress.
The nomination should include a letter outlining the case in support of the nominee, along with a curriculum vitae. Nominations as well as any inquiries about the award should be sent to Gesine Reinert at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for accepting nominations is November 30th, 2022. The prize winner will be selected in Spring 2023. More information is available at https://bernoullisociety.org/index.php/prizes?id=207.
