Young Statistician Award

The Young Statistician Award is aimed to recognise the work of young people in introducing innovative methods, promoting the use of Statistics and/or successfully using it in the daily practice. People from both academic and industrial world are encouraged to participate.

By the deadline set by the Young Statistician Award Committee, people can nominate young statisticians or even themselves, provided that at least one person (nominee and/or nominating person) is an ENBIS member. Submissions are possible only in electronic format. The following documents should be submitted:

  • declaration of being younger than 35 by the deadline;
  • recommendation letter from, at least, another statistician (provided he/she and/or the nominee is an ENBIS member);
  • publications (dissertations, reports, papers, detailed descriptions of activities and projects) [ENBIS is aware that submitting "papers" by people involved in industrial, non academic activities is not easy (because of confidentiality, different priorities in industries rather than in academic world where "publishing" is a key goal.). The Young Statistician Award Committee will take in consideration these aspects and therefore ENBIS encourages young statisticians working in companies to apply and submit enough evidence to be evaluated];
  • any "evidence" (web page of projects, patents, etc.) which could be useful to evaluate the candidate's contributions;
  • extended abstract (3 pages) and title of a paper the candidate would like to present at the next ENBIS annual conference.


The Young Statistician Award recipient will be invited to the ENBIS annual conference where he/she

  • will deliver a lecture in a session;
  • will receive the award;
  • will be partially reimbursed (by the George Box Fund, generally) for his/her travel and stay.

Should the recipient be unable to attend the conference, then the ENBIS President would decide when and where the award should be presented to him/her.
