The Bernoulli Prize for an Outstanding Survey Article is to recognize authors of an influential survey publication in the areas of probability and statistics, respectively. The paper should be timely in addressing areas of active or emerging importance, but have been in circulation long enough for there to be evidence of its impact.

Description

Probability and statistics are undergoing a substantial increase in both the breadth of scope and the mathematical technicality of many areas of specialization. There is a need for expertly written survey articles that will communicate an historic perspective on the successes, failures and general health of the area, as well as provide young researchers with a point of entry to the frontiers of the field. The Bernoulli Society plays a role in recognizing and communicating the importance of such scholarly efforts through a special award.

The Bernoulli Prize for an Outstanding Survey Article is to recognize authors of an influential survey publication in the areas of probability and statistics, respectively. The paper should be timely in addressing areas of active or emerging importance, but have been in circulation long enough for there to be evidence of its impact.

The award consists of the prize amount of 1000€ together with an award certificate. The amount may be adjusted in future years by joint request of committee chairs and approval of Bernoulli Council.

The combined awards are biennial. A paper in probability will be presented in a formal ceremony at the Bernoulli World Congress (BWC) in the summer of 2016, and a prize for a paper in statistics will be awarded in 2018, and formally presented at the ISI Statistics World Congress (SWC) in the summer of 2019, and each so awarded every four years, thereafter.

Call for nominations in probability

According to the award specifications, nominations exclude self-nominations.

Dates and Nominations should include full name and email address of both the nominee and nominator, as well as a pdf file of the published article in probability. The nomination deadline will be announced.

Eligible Articles

The article should appear in a peer reviewed journal or book, but may be in either print or electronic format. The chief editor where the paper appears will receive an official congratulatory letter of notification from the president of the Bernoulli Society.

Prize Committee

There will be two award committees, one for probability and one for statistics, consisting of three members each, appointed by the president of the Bernoulli Society upon recommendation of the Council for a four-year term. The respective chairs are to serve ex officio on the alternate committee. Journal chief editors are disqualified from serving during their term of editorship. Contiguous four-year terms are not permitted.
