***CONGRATULATIONS and THANKS
Professor Zhen-Qing Chen (https://goo.gl/GXheTD) is the new chair of CCSP (Committee for Conferences on Stochastic Processes). He has started his term on January 1, 2018 and will end it on December 31, 2019. Many thanks to Professor Kavita Ramanan (https://goo.gl/k5TGFG), who served as chair of CCSP until the end of 2017.
***Bernoulli Society New Researcher Award
The Bernoulli Society welcomes submissions to the New Researcher Award. Each awardee will deliver a 30-minute talk during the ISI World Congress in Malasya 2019, and will receive a funding up to 1000€ to offset travel and other expenses. Bernoulli News will publish their pictures and a paragraph about their work.
Eligible candidates are active researchers in Mathematical Statistics who, at the time of submission, are regular members of the Bernoulli Society and are within 5 years of receiving the PhD. Female candidates get 1 extra year for each child born since receiving the PhD.

***62st ISI World Statistics Congress 2019
August 18-23, 2019
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The Bernoulli Society (BS) invites the submission of proposals for BS-sponsored Invited Paper Sessions (IPS) at the 2019 ISI World Statistics Congress, to be held from 18 to 23 August 2019 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Proposals can be submitted as of 1 January 2018 using the electronic submission system on the WSC website.
If you wish that your proposed session is considered as a BS-sponsored session, please indicate this by choosing the Bernoulli Society as the primary related ISI Association in the relevant field. If you wish to list more than one Association, please note that your proposal will first be reviewed by the primary Association, under the guidance of its representative on the SPC.
Deadline for IPS proposals: 31 March 2018.
Each proposal should include: (1) a paragraph describing and justifying the proposed session; (2) a list of speakers and discussants that have agreed to participate; (3) an organizer, as well as a potential replacement in case that organizer declines. The selection criteria will take into account scientific quality, impact, and diversity. For Bernoulli Society sessions specifically, an effort will be made to strike a proper balance between statistics and probability in light of the typical composition of the body of WSC attendees.
