I suppose I can publish that information in the November IFCS Newsletter!?
Yes, sure,  but I'll embed it in some more material I'll be sending you in a day or two.

Thanks.

The Classification Society Distinguished Dissertation Award

                  supported by Chapman and Hall/CRC

The Award will be for the best PhD (or approximately equivalent doctoral)
dissertation nominated by an annual deadline. The theme is clustering,
classification, related areas of data analysis, encompassing both associated
theory and/or applications.

The Award is administered by the Classification Society (CS). An evaluation
committee is set up by CS to evaluate the nominated theses. This committee
should have between 3 and 5 members. The chair of the committee is appointed
by the CS President. The committee is selected by the committee chair, in
conjunction with the CS President, and is approved by the CS Board.

In 2010-2011, the evaluation committee is: Samantha Prins (Committee Chair,
Dept. of
Mathematics & Statistics, James Madison University), Douglas Steinley (Dept.
of Psychological Sciences, University of Missouri-Columbia), Rebecca Nugent
(Dept. of Statistics, Carnegie Mellon University), Nema Dean (Dept. of
Statistics, University of
Glasgow) and special invited member: Daniel Aloise (Dept. of Production
Engineering, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte; 2009-2010 Award
winner).

Members of the evaluation committee must declare any potential conflict of
interest. A member of the evaluation committee cannot play any role in
regard to evaluating his/her own PhDs, nor also in regard to nominations
where there has been a direct collaborative link (e.g. through joint
publications).

Typical criteria for nomination for the Award include: (i) the most
innovative or impressive work in theory/methodology, or the most innovative
or well developed application(s); and (ii) the literature review has to be
thorough. For the next submission deadline, 1 January 2011, nominated PhDs
have to have been successfully completed in the 2010 calendar year.

Nominations are to be made through the evaluation committee chair and will
be received from the author (PhD), their advisor/supervisor, or other
related person. Nomination includes the name and contact points, an online
copy of the dissertation, and a short description of why the dissertation
merits the award (see above). Web-accessible versions of the nomination and
dissertation must be made available. Printed copies may be requested.

After the nomination has been received, the evaluation committee chair will
request that the nominator obtain two external referee reports. It is
suggested that these reports be completed by knowledgeable persons other
than the author, their advisor/supervisor or similarly related person.

A decision is made by the evaluation committee by 1 April. The evaluation
committee can recommend one award; an award and a runner-up; two joint
winners; or other combinations if they think it appropriate.

Awards are ratified by the CS Board. Publicity is made in the CS and other
newsletters, and on relevant websites. The short-list of nominated
dissertations will also be openly published.

For non-English language theses, it is requested to provide an extended
abstract, and (where relevant) pointers to papers associated with the thesis
that have been published.

In 2011 the Award totals US$500 in book vouchers from Chapman and Hall/CRC.
The winner will be invited to make a presentation in a special plenary
session at the CS Annual Meeting. CS will cover travel expenses to the 2011
Annual Meeting of at most US$1000 for a North American based Award winner
or at most US$1500 for an Award winner based elsewhere.
