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

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.
