1.- GENERAL NEWS

* The Executive Committee and Council of the Bernoulli Society approved a special issue of the Bernoulli Journal for the year 2013 to commemorate the 300 anniversary of the publication of the 'Ars Conjectandi' by Jacob Bernoulli. The guest editors will be Richard Davis and Thomas Mikosch. It will consist of a series of invited papers that will provide a glimpse at future directions in probability and statistics from new application areas, to the development of new models, to the emerging interfaces between statistics and probability with other sciences, as well as essays on the future of probability and mathematical statistics. It will be in addition to the four numbers of the annual volume and will have electronic public open access.

* Bernoulli News: We would like to remind you that the deadline for submitting material to be published in the next  issue of Bernoulli News is March the 31st. Due to a rather tight production schedule material reaching us later can only be included in the next issue.

7.- A MESSAGE FROM THE MEMBERSHIP SECRETARY

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MEMBERSHIP: Spread the news about Bernoulli Society Fees for 2011-70% reduction now for members from developing countries

Dear fellow members of Bernoulli Society,

We are once again asking for your help in promoting the society further within our community. The reason is that the Bernoulli Society Council has recently decided to introduce some extended benefits, but otherwise keep the membership fees for 2011 the same as for 2010 (like, e.g., free membership for PhD students). Please help us spreading the news among your colleagues, PhD students, postdocs or whoever might possibly be interested in joining the Bernoulli Society.

For example, members from developing countries are offered a 70% reduction now (instead of 50%) and receive an extra reduction for the personal hard copy subscription of the Bernoulli Journal. Moreover, the list of developing countries (see www.icce2010.org/docs/developingCountries.pdf) for the latter membership and subscription was extended for 2011. Further benefits have been achieved for all Bernoulli Society members. For full information and details, please check the membership information (www.bernoulli-society.org/index.php/membership/membership-information) in the new Bernoulli Society website (www.bernoulli-society.org/) or the recent issue of BERNOULLI NEWS

(http://www.bernoulli-society.org/index.php/publications/bernoulli-news).

In any case, we appreciate your help in supporting this initiative for recruiting new members to our society and thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards,

Josef G. Steinebach

(Bernoulli Society Membership Secretary)

Dear Bernoulli Society members,

This is the second issue of the Bernoulli E-Briefs, a bimonthly electronic Bulletin by the BS intended as a device for sharing latest news and relevant information with all members of our society in tight collaboration with the Bernoulli News. Speaking

of the latter its latest number is about to appear and includes the transcription

of the opening lecture of the Fifth World Congress of the Bernoulli Society, "Notes

about the Bernoulli Society" by Jef L. Teugels, reminiscences and highlights of the

second World Congress in Uppsala by Allan Gut as well as interesting book reviews

and news on recently held and forthcoming events.

We have received news on forthcoming events which we include in this number and once

again invite our BS colleagues to use Bernoulli E-Briefs for short notice information.

Yours truly,

Carenne Ludena and Ramses H. Mena
