The CRM-SSC Prize 2013 is awarded to Derek Bingham, Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, Simon Fraser University, for his outstanding contributions in the area of the design and analysis of experiments in the physical and engineering sciences, specifically in the development of statistical methodology for complex computer simulators, fractional factorial designs for multi-stage experiments, and for optimal robust parameter designs for product variation reduction. | Read more
The CRM created and administers, either alone or jointly, four of the eight major national prizes in the mathematical sciences, namely: the CRM–Fields–PIMS Prize, the Prize for Theoretical Physics awarded in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP), the Prize for young researchers in Statistics awarded jointly with the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC), and the CRM Aisenstadt Prize awarded to rising young Canadian stars, selected by CRM's Scientific Advisory Panel. The CRM has invested enormously in time, effort and in its own resources, to propel leading Canadian scientists into the spotlight, giving them international recognition when they most need it.
