ASA Stat. Computing & Stat. Graphics Student Paper Competition 2015

Statistical Computing and Statistical Graphics Sections
American Statistical Association

Student Paper Competition 2015

The Statistical Computing and Statistical Graphics Sections of the ASA
are co-sponsoring a student paper competition on the topics of
Statistical Computing and Statistical Graphics.  Students are
encouraged to submit a paper in one of these areas, which might be
original methodological research, some novel computing or graphical
application in statistics, or any other suitable contribution (for
example, a software-related project).  The selected winners will
present their papers in a topic-contributed session at the 2015 Joint
Statistical Meetings.  The Sections will pay registration fees for the
winners as well as a substantial allowance for transportation to the
meetings and lodging.

Anyone who is a student (graduate or undergraduate) on or after
September 1, 2014 is eligible to participate.  An entry must include
an abstract, a six page manuscript (including figures, tables and
references), blinded versions of the abstract and manuscript (with no
authors and no references that easily lead to identifying the
authors), a C.V., and a letter from a faculty member familiar with the
student's work.  The applicant must be the first author of the paper.
The faculty letter must include a verification of the applicant's
student status and, in the case of joint authorship, should indicate
what fraction of the contribution is attributable to the applicant.
We prefer that electronic submissions of papers be in Postscript or
PDF.  All materials must be in English.

Students may submit papers to no more than two sections and may accept
only one section's award. Students must inform both sections applied
to when he or she wins and accepts an award, thereby removing the
student from the award competition for the second section.

All application materials MUST BE RECEIVED by 5:00 PM EST, Sunday,
December 14, 2014 at the address below.  They will be reviewed by the
Student Paper Competition Award committee of the Statistical Computing
and Graphics Sections.  The selection criteria used by the committee
will include innovation and significance of the contribution as well
as the professional quality of the manuscript.  Award announcements
will be made by January 15th, 2015.

Additional important information on the competition can be accessed on
ASA's "Student Paper Competition/Travel Award to Attend the Joint
Statistical Meetings" page at
http://www.amstat.org/sections/studentpaperawards.cfm, or at the
website of the Statistical Computing Section,
http://www.statcomputing.org.  Inquiries and application materials
should be emailed or mailed to:
