American Statistical Association Announces Karl E. Peace Award Honoring Georgia Southern University Professor
The American Statistical Association announces the establishment of the Karl E. Peace Award for Outstanding Statistical Contributions for the Betterment of Society to honor Georgia Southern University professor Karl E. Peace, Ph.D. The award will be presented annually and recognizes statisticians who have made substantial contributions to the statistical profession and to society in general.
The award was established this month by Christopher K. Peace, Peace’s son, on behalf of the Peace family to honor the life work of his father. Peace currently serves as a Georgia Cancer Coalition Distinguished Cancer Scholar, senior research scientist and professor of biostatistics at the University’s Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health.
Each recipient of the award will receive an engraved award and cash prize, presented at the awards ceremony during the organization’s Joint Statistical Meetings. The current amount of the cash prize is $1,000, which is divided evenly among the winners. The award will be given every year if, in the opinion of the awards committee, there is a nominee worthy of the award.
