Only one winner for each award will be selected.

Starting in 2013 the Statistical Modelling Society will award three student prizes for contributions to its annual International Workshop on Statistical Modelling (IWSM). The three awards will be:

Best IWSM 2013 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 2013 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 2013. 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.
The winner is: Jonathan Gellar (and Ciprian Crainiceanu) - Cox regression models with functional covariates

Best IWSM 2013 Student Presentation
Students participating in IWSM 2013 with an oral presentation will compete automatically for the Best IWSM 2013 Student Presentation award. The presentations will be evaluated by the Student Workshop Panel independently of the Best IWSM 2013 Student Paper award. The student must be the lead investigator of the paper, which is certified by the student’s advisor. The quality of the oral presentation will predominantly determine the evaluation.
The winner is: Kevin Burke (and Gilbert MacKenzie) - Multi-parameter regression survival models

Best IWSM 2013 Student Poster
Students participating in IWSM 2013 with a poster presentation will compete automatically for the Best IWSM 2013 Student Poster award. The presentations will be evaluated by the Student Workshop Panel. The student must be the lead investigator of the paper, which is certified by the student’s advisor.
The winner is: Silvia Rizzi (and Jutta Gampe, Paul H.C. Eilers) - Efficient ungrouping of coarse histograms with the penalized composite link model
