General Announcement

The New Researcher Award is for Bernoulli Society members who are active researchers of mathematical statistics. The main goal of this award is to recognize innovative research by new researchers.

The applicants for this award were asked to submit a 3-page synopsis of their presentation, along with their CV by February 28, 2018. The response to this award call was fabulous - 34 applications were submitted many of which were very strong applications making the selection procedure extremely challenging. After evaluating each CV and synopsis, the award committee has chosen the following new researchers for the award:

Po-Ling Loh, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Gongjun Xu, University of Michigan

Lingzhou Xue, Pennsylvania State University

Each of the awardees will deliver a 30-minute talk at the 62nd ISI World Statistics Congress to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia during August 18 - 23, 2019, and will receive funding from Bernoulli Society towards travel and other expenses.

Apart from the above awardees, Bernoulli Society is awarding honourable mentions to the following researchers:

Quentin Berthet, University of Cambridge

Sebastian Engelke, University of Geneva

Subhabrata Sen, Microsoft Research New England and Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Bernoulli Society would like to congratulate the above researchers and thank each and every applicant for their interest in the award.

The LARC-SLAPEM organizes, every two/three years, a prize to honor the memory of Francisco Aranda-Ordaz, a distinguished young Mexican statistician who died tragically in 1991. Sponsored by the Bernoulli Society, the Francisco Aranda-Ordaz Award is bestowed for one thesis in Probability and one thesis in Statistics written by students from Latin America, regardless of the country of the university offering the degree, or by students from other nationalities who received the degree from a Latin American university. The winners are invited to present their works at the CLAPEM meeting.
