New Judge for Chambers Award

José Pinheiro, section awards officer announces:

Ross Ihaka has concluded his three-year term as a Chambers Award judge. Many thanks to Ross for all his wonderful contributions over these past three years. It is always good to acknowledge that it is the hard work of volunteers like Ross that make the Chambers and other awards sponsored by the section possible.

I am pleased to announce that David James, from Bell Labs and with a long history of contributions and participation in our section and the Stat. Graphics section, has accepted the invitation to replace Ross in the Chambers Award judge team. I am looking forward to working with David in the forthcoming competitions.
