Conference - 31th International Workshop on Statistical Modelling

IWSM 2016: Student Awards

Students attending the Workshop have the possibility to compete for these three student Awards (sponsored by Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University):

  • The Toyota Motor Corporation Award for the best student paper: US $ 500
  • The Toyota Motor Corporation Award for the best student presentation: US $ 500
  • The Toyota Motor Corporation Award for the best student poster: US $ 500

In order to be considered for these awards, the presenting author must make it clear that he/she is a student on abstract submission. To confirm the student status, a statement signed by the student's supervisor or another authority from the university is required. The abstract and this statement must be submitted together via the "Abstract submission" page. Only one winner for each award will be selected.

Best IWSM 2016 Student Paper

This award includes a fast-tracked review, and publication of the paper in the Society's journal Statistical Modelling, subject to prior agreement from the author/authors and being accepted by the editorial board of the journal. The Best IWSM 2016 Student Paper will be selected by the Student Workshop Panel together with representatives of the Editors of Statistical Modelling from all papers being at the same time orally presented by the student author during regular sessions of the IWSM 2016. The student must be the lead investigator of the paper, which is certified by the student's advisor. The quality of the presented paper itself (and not its oral presentation) will predominantly determine the evaluation.

Best IWSM 2016 Student Presentation

Students participating in IWSM 2016 with an oral presentation will compete automatically for the Best IWSM 2016 Student Presentation award. The presentations will be evaluated by the Student Workshop Panel independently of the Best IWSM 2016 Student Paper award. The student must be the lead investigator of the presented research, which is certified by the student's advisor. The quality of the oral presentation will predominantly determine the evaluation.

Best IWSM 2016 Student Poster

Students participating in IWSM 2016 with a poster presentation will compete automatically for the Best IWSM 2016 Student Poster award. The presentations will be evaluated by the Student Workshop Panel. The student must be the lead investigator of the presented research, which is certified by the student's advisor.

IWSM 2016: Student Grants

The Statistical Modelling Society will provide up to two travel grants to support students who have no other means of financial support. These travel grants will include:

  • Student registration fee for the IWSM including a one-year subscription to the journal Statistical Modelling,
  • Participation in the IWSM social events (excursion and conference dinner),
