Name: The Info-Metrics Annual Prize in Memory of Halbert L. White Jr.
Location: Washington, DC.
The Info-Metrics Institute is pleased to announce the creation of the Halbert L. White Jr. prize in memory of one of the Institute's founding board members who passed away on March 31, 2012. The prize is intended to reward outstanding academic research by an early career scholar in the field of info-metrics and carries an award of $2000 to be conferred either to an individual or shared among joint recipients. A maximum of one prize will be awarded each year. The award ceremony will occur at the first Info-Metrics meeting (conference or workshop) following the announcement of the award recipient. The annual Info-Metrics prize will be given for the best recent published work, in any academic discipline, that is deemed likely to bring important advances to multiple academic disciplines in the area of info-metrics (the science and practice of inference and quantitative information processing). The first prize will be given in 2014.
