Nominations Sought for Ethel Newbold Prize

1 October 2020 No Comment

The Bernoulli Society’s Newbold Prize Committee invites nominations for the fourth Ethel Newbold Prize.

The Ethel Newbold Prize is awarded every two years for excellence in statistics and recognizes the historically important role of women in statistics, although the prize is for excellence in statistics without reference to the gender of the recipient and will not be awarded unless nominations include candidates from both genders.

The prize is to be awarded to an outstanding statistical scientist 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.

The winner, to be selected in the spring of 2021, will be awarded 2,500€ (almost $3,000) and a certificate. The prize will be awarded at a Bernoulli World Congress, Bernoulli-sponsored major conference, or ISI World Statistics Congress. The awardee will also be invited to present a talk at one of these conferences.

Each nomination should include a letter outlining the case in support of the nominee and a curriculum vitae. Nominations and inquiries about the award should be sent to Jon Wellner. The deadline for nominations is November 30.
