The Bayesian Statistical Science Section announced the outcome of their 2018 student paper competition. They had forty entrants and UCB Statistics Ph.D. student Ryan Giordano was one of ten who was selected to receive a travel award to attend the JSM in Vancouver this coming July. The winner of the Bayesian Statistical Science Section Laplace prize will be selected from this group of ten and announced at the JSM. In addition, there will be two Topic Contributed sessions at JSM so the winning students can present their work. If you plan to attend JSM this summer be certain to attend Ryan's session and show your support for UCB Statistics!
