8th World Congress in Probability and Statistics
Created on Monday, 05 September 2011 07:30
The eighth World Congress in Probability and Statistics will be in Istanbul from July 9 to 14, 2012. It is jointly organized by the Bernoulli Society and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. Scheduled every four years, this meeting is a major worldwide event for statistics and probability, covering all its branches, including theoretical, methodological, applied and computational statistics and probability, and stochastic processes. It features the latest scientific developments in these fields.
The program will cover a wide range of topics in statistics and probability, presenting recent developments and the state of the art in a variety of modern research topics, with in-depth sessions on applications of these disciplines to other sciences, industrial innovation and society. It will feature several special plenary lectures presented by leading specialists. In addition, there will be many invited sessions highlighting topics of current research interests, as well as a large number of contributed sessions and posters.
For further details take a look at the conference flyer or the conference website.

Mentor Programme for Ph.D students
Created on Monday, 02 May 2011 13:06
A new international web-based mentor programme for Ph.D students in statistics and probability at universities in developing countries is launched, sponsored by the International Statistical Institute and the Bernoulli Society. Ph.D students can enrol for the programme online and are put in contact with volunteer senior statisticians. The programme is based in Oslo, see http://statmentoring.nr.no to find out more on what the programme does. If you wish to join you can enrol as a mentor, or join as a student.
