A prize to be awarded to a mid-career researcher, defined as someone with more than 10 years of
experience after PhD or in employment, who has made an important contribution in research areas of
Hukum Chandra’s work namely, survey sampling, small area estimation, official statistics, spatial analysis
applied to official and survey statistics and agricultural statistics. The definition of a mid-career
researcher in this call aims to recognise researchers who are close to Dr Chandra’s career trajectory.
The prize is open to applicants from all regions of the world. A PhD degree is not an essential criterion
for the award. The prize will be awarded every other year by the IASS Prize Committee in collaboration
with the IASS Executive Committee. The recipient of the Hukum Chandra Memorial Prize will receive
an honorarium of 500 Euros and will be invited to present a special webinar with discussion in the
IASS Webinar Series.
Submit an extended abstract of up to 5 pages (including references) on which the webinar will be based.
This must comprise original work that is either unpublished or published. The extended abstract must be
written in English, include a clear statement of the problem, the proposed method(s) and a summary of
key results. If the work is based on a published paper, the paper should be part of the application. Each
submission must also be accompanied by a short CV (max two pages).
The CV, extended abstract and paper (if available) must be submitted to the chair of the IASS prize
committee, Prof. Nikos Tzavidis, email@example.com by 23:59 GMT on 16 May 2022.
The submission deadline is 16 May 2022. The decision will be communicated by the end of July and
