Call for Nominations: Mahalanobis International Award in Statistics

created 02  Nov  2010


The Indian Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, representing the Government of India, is continuing its biennial initiative to award the Mahalanobis International Award in Statistics in memory of the eminent Indian statistician Professor P.C. Mahalanobis.

The Award is to be given to a selected statistician from a developing country (as defined by the United Nations) who has worked there in recognition of his/her lifetime achievement in Statistics and the promotion of best statistical practices. This initiative serves the double purpose of keeping the memory of P.C. Mahalanobis alive and of recognising and stimulating progress in Statistics in developing countries.

The previous winners of the Award are Professor C.R. Rao (India) in 2003, Professor Benjamin Kiregyera (Uganda) in 2005, Dr. Isidoro P. David (Philippines) in 2007, and Professor Pedro Morettin (Brazil) in 2009.

At the request of the Indian Minister, the International Statistical Institute (ISI) has asked the ISI Mahalanobis Committee, chaired by Professor Vincenzo Esposito Vinzi (Italy), to propose a candidate for the 2011 Award.

The Mahalanobis International Award in Statistics consists of:
1) An economy class return flight ticket to the 58th ISI World Statistics Congress Dublin
2) A per diem payment for accommodation and other living expenses while in Dublin
3) An monetary award of US$5,000

The 2011 Award will be presented at the ISI World Statistics Congress in Dublin, Ireland (21-26 August 2011).

The Mahalanobis Committee on International Award in Statistics invites you to propose a candidate to the Committee, with reasons supporting the proposed candidate and the proposed candidate's curriculum vitae. Candidates can nominate themselves for the Award, accompanied by a support of two referees. Candidates can also be proposed by their organisation, academic institution, National Statistical Office or National Statistical Society.
