2018 Awards of the SSC : Call for nominations
Every year, the SSC recognizes excellence in our community by giving numerous awards. To do this, the various award committees must receive nominations from members like you! Consider preparing nominations for deserving candidates now as the deadlines for submitting nominations are approaching.
The deadline for the Gold Medal, Honorary Membership, Distinguished Service Award, Pierre Robillard Award and the SSC Award for Impact of Applied and Collaborative Work is January 31, 2018 while it is February 1, 2018 for the CRM-SSC Prize in Statistics.
The Lise Manchester Award is given in alternate years and will be awarded in 2018. The deadline for nominations is February 15, 2018, for work published or completed between December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2017.
For the Student Research Presentation Awards, the deadlines are February 15, 2018.
SSC members are also encouraged to nominate deserving candidates for the five awards sponsored by the Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies (COPSS).
Details concerning all of these awards and how to nominate a candidate, can be found in the September issue of Liaison. The Board recently approved a document providing guidelines to nominators and award committee members for avoiding implicit bias in the selection of award winners.
Please take the time to think about deserving candidates and submit nominations to help us celebrate excellence among our colleagues and students!
