2023 LiDS Student Paper Competition
The Lifetime Data Science (LiDS) Section of the American Statistical Association is soliciting entries for the student paper competition for the 2023 Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM).
The applicant must be a member of the ASA-LiDS Section at the time of paper submission, and a doctoral degree candidate at an accredited institution or a graduate with a doctoral degree during the 2022 calendar year. The topic of the research should be relevant to methods or applications for lifetime data science. The applicant must be the first author of the paper, but it may be co-authored by faculty advisors and/or collaborators. The paper must not be published or accepted for publication at the time of submission. The Award winners should be available to present the same paper submitted for the Award at the 2023 Joint Statistical Meetings in Toronto, Canada.
Please note that membership in ASA does not automatically confer Section membership; ASA members must join individual sections in addition to their generic membership; Lifetime Data Science Section membership is free for students: when joining the ASA or renewing your ASA membership, select "Lifetime Data Science" to join.
Guidelines for Manuscript Preparation
The manuscripts should be on the topic related to lifetime data science and should be no more than a total of 25 pages in length (including the abstract, tables, figures, references, and appendix if any), with at least one-inch margins, a 12-point font size, and no more than 25 lines per page, double-spaced.
The submission should include:
- a cover letter stating eligibility for the application and including name, current affiliation, status including actual or intended date of graduation, the institution for the doctoral degree, and contact information (address, telephone, e-mail) of the applicant;
- a letter from the advisor certifying student status (or completion of a degree in 2022);
- a copy of the manuscript.
Up to five awards will be offered to the outstanding student papers. Each winner will receive a $500 cash prize to cover JSM 2023 expenses.
All required materials for the Student Paper Award Competition must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. EDT December 15, 2022, to Dr. Jing Ning, Chair of the LiDS Student Paper Awards Competition Committee, at email@example.com with "LiDS Student Paper Competition" in the subject line of the email.
