ASA SPAIG AWARD 2022:
Nominations are due 1 March 2022.
The nominating period is now open for the 2022 ASA SPAIG Award. The award, which recognizes outstanding partnerships between academe, industry, and government organizations, will be presented at the Joint Statistical Meetings in August 2022. Sponsored by the ASA SPAIG Committee, the award is distinct from other ASA awards in that it recognizes outstanding collaborations between organizations, while also recognizing key individual contributors, such as statisticians and subject matter experts involved in the partnership.
The nominated partnership must be between organizations from at least two of the three sectors: academe, industry, and government. In addition, the collaboration must have resulted in significant contributions to the statistical field with applications to real-world problems in areas such as health, education, agriculture, astronomy, geography, epidemiology, pharmacology, forensic science, demography, law, finance, and the environment. Examples include innovative methodologies or initiatives, new technologies, novel analytic and evaluation approaches, publications, statistical workshops, internship programs, and rigorous analysis of real-world data to answer urgent questions (e.g., pandemic-related).
