*2018 EMS/BS Joint Lecturer
Samuel Kou ( has been chosen as the EMS/BS joint lecturer to speak at the 11th European Conference on Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ECMTB 2018), to be held in Lisbon, July 23-27, 2018. 

*Second Bernoulli Prize for Outstanding Survey Articles in Probability 
The paper “Gaussian multiplicative chaos and applications: A review” by Remi Rhodes ( and Vincent Vargas (, published in Probability Surveys (2014, Vol 11, pp315-392) has been awarded the Second Bernoulli Prize for Outstanding Survey Articles in Probability. The prize committee was chaired by Erwin Bolthausen. Combined with Bernoulli Prize for Outstanding Survey Articles in Statistics, the prizes are awarded every two years alternately. The prize in probability was supposed to be awarded at the Bernoulli World Congress, Toronto in 2016, but the decision has been delayed. Information on the prize is to be found at

 *Call for nominations for the 2018 Doeblin Prize            
The Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability welcomes nominations for the 2018 Wolfgang Doeblin Prize. The Wolfgang Doeblin Prize, which was founded in 2011 and is generously sponsored by Springer, is awarded biannually to a single individual who is in the beginning of his or her mathematical career, for outstanding research in the field of probability theory.  The awardee will be invited to submit to the journal Probability Theory and Related Fields a paper for publication as the Wolfgang Doeblin Prize Article, and will also be invited to present the Doeblin Prize Lecture at a World Congress of the Bernoulli Society, or at a Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications.  More information about the Wolfgang Doeblin prize and past awardees can be viewed at
Each nomination should offer a brief but adequate case of support and should be sent by November 15, 2017, to the chair of the prize committee at the following address: This email address is being protected from spambots.

*European Meeting of Statisticians, Helsinki, Finland, July 24-28
The European Meeting of Statisticians (EMS) , sponsored by the European Regional Committee of the Bernoulli Society, is the main conference in statistics and probability in Europe. EMS is a conference where statisticians of all ages and from all regions meet to exchange ideas and talk about the newest developments on the broad field of statistics and probability theory.
Opening: Martin Wainwright. Plenary speakers: John Aston, Gerda Claeskens, Alison Etheridge, Alexander Holevo, Hannu Oja. Forum: Mark Girolami. Closing: Yann LeCun.

*20th European Young Statisticians Meeting, Uppsala, Sweden, August 14-18
The EYSM is arranged every two years under the auspices of the Bernoulli Society. The idea of the meeting is to provide young researchers an introduction to the international scene within the broad subject area - from pure probability theory to applied statistics.
Participation is by invitation only.

*XXXIV International Seminar on Stability Problems for Stochastic Models, Debrecen, Hungary, August 25-29
The XXXIV International Seminar on Stability Problems for Stochastic Models is organized under the auspices of Faculty of Informatics, University of Debrecen, Lomonosov Moscow State University, and Institute of Informatics Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Main sessions: Limit Theorems and Stability Problems; Stochastic Processes; Statistics of Time Series and Stochastic Processes; Finance, Insurance, Risk; Spatial Statistics; Applied Statistics and Data Analysis; Stochastic Dynamics; Random Graphs; Queuing Theory and Modeling Information Systems; Probability Distributions; Discrete Probability Models; Nonparametric Statistics; Statistical Learning.

*High Dimensional Statistics, theory and practice, Fréjus, France, October 01-06
This course presents an introduction and recent advances in high dimensional statistics, with a special emphasis on main concepts of variable selection, nonparametric estimation, supervised and unsupervised classification and multiple testing. It will address theoretical, methodological and practical aspects of this field.

*Statistics meets friends, Gottingen, Germany, November 29- December 01
This meeting, held on the occasion of Axel Munk's 50th birthday, aims at bridging the gap between Mathematical Statistics, Inverse Problems and Biophysics, highlighting recent developments at their interfaces. There will be the possibility to present a poster.
