IBM Student Research Awards

IBM Student Awards were established in 2005. IBM T.J. Watson Research Center is a sponsor of these student awards. These awards were given in the odd years when the symposiums were held in Storrs until 2017. A complete list of the winners of IBM student awards from 2005-2017 can be found from here or from the table below.

Starting 2018, IBM Student Awards will be given every year, as one of the primary student awards of the New England Statistical Society.

Students need to submit papers for one of these awards before the symposium each year. The winners will be selected by the IBM award committee based on the overall quality of the research, and they will be acknowledged at the symposium and will receive a plaque in honor of their accomplishments. Please note that award winners from previous years are not eligible for another award.

To apply, the following must be emailed to chair of the IBM award committee:

The deadline of submission will be announced on the symposium website each year.
