ISBA Fellows

On the 20th anniversary of the founding of ISBA,  the inaugural group of ISBA Fellows were elected  by the ISBA Board to honor the members of the first ISBA  Board of Directors and other individuals who were instrumental in the creation of ISBA.    To recognize ISBA members who have made outstanding contributions in some aspect of statistical work (publication, teaching, and service, including service to the society), an eight person committee of past Fellows will elect new ISBA Fellows on a bi-annual basis.

Any ISBA member, who as been a current member for at least three years, is eligible for nomination.   Nominators should arrange to have three letters of support and a recent cv to submit as part of the nomination package. To avoid conflict of interest we request that nominators do not request letters from current members of the ISBA Fellows Committee. Elected Fellows will be announced at the ISBA World Meeting.

Nominations are now being accepted for new ISBA Fellows. Nominees must be current ISBA members and should have been members for the last three consecutive years, at least. The individual’s contributions should have had a significant impact in promoting Bayesian ideas and methods in society, through scientific works and other activities, such as teaching, consulting or service. Submissions and supporting letters should not be made by current members of the Fellows Selection Committee to avoid conflicts of interest. Nominations may be made by any current ISBA member.

Please prepare nominations as a single pdf file following the convention LASTNAME_FIRSTNAME.pdf so the file name corresponds to the nominee and then email them to The nomination should include

  1. a cover letter containing the both the nominator’s and nominee’s names and email addresses and a citation to be used if the nomination is successful
  2. the nominee’s current CV
  3. three letters of support from ISBA members (other than the nominee) that address the criteria for ISBA Fellow

Nominations must be received on or before February, 1, 2024. The new fellows will be announced at the 2024 ISBA World Meeting in Venice, Italy.
