Student Paper Competition 2007

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 2007 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 (which in most cases covers these expenses completely).

Anyone who is a student (graduate or undergraduate) on or after September 1, 2006 is eligible to participate. An entry must include an abstract, a six page manuscript (including figures, tables and references), a blinded version of the 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.

All application materials MUST BE RECEIVED by 5:00 PM EST, Monday, December 18, 2006 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. Award announcements will be made in late January, 2007.

Additional important information on the competition can be accessed on the website of the Statistical Computing Section, www.statcomputing.org. A current pointer to the website is available from the ASA website at www.amstat.org. Inquiries and application materials should be emailed or mailed to:
