Ulf Grenander Prize Announced

1 May 2017 27 views No Comment

The Ulf Grenander Prize in Stochastic Theory and Modeling is a new prize that recognizes exceptional theoretical and applied contributions in stochastic theory and modeling. It is awarded for seminal work, theoretical or applied, in probabilistic modeling, statistical inference, or related computational algorithms, especially for the analysis of complex or high-dimensional systems. The prize was established by colleagues of Grenander, who died in 2016. A longtime faculty member and chair of the Brown University Department of Applied Mathematics, Grenander received many honors. He was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences, as well as a member of the Royal Swedish Academy.

Nominations are open until June 30 for the first Grenander Prize, which will be awarded in January 2018.
