The New England Statistical Society (NESS) invites nominations for the
Chernoff Excellence in Statistics Award.
The New England Statistical Society (NESS) has created the Chernoff
Excellence in Statistics Award to commemorate Herman Chernoff’s
outstanding, long-term contributions to the field of statistics.
These contributions include work on large sample theory, experimental
design, sequential analysis, methods of presenting statistical data in
visual form, and statistical decision making.
The Chernoff Excellence in Statistics Awards is the most prestigious
award bestowed by the NESS, given to an individual who, in the
tradition of Herman Chernoff’s work, has made exceptional
contributions to the theory, methodology, or novel applications to
statistics and/or data science. The award will be rewarded to one
recipient every year at the New England Statistics Symposium, with
travel expenses covered plus a minimum $500 honorarium. The first
award is targeted for 2019.
Nominations for the award are to be submitted by December
