Announcements and News

The Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability has extended the call for nominations for the 2024 Wolfgang Doeblin Prize.

Aapplications can be submitted until April 12, 2024.

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.  Nominees should normally be within 10 (calendar) years from getting their PhD to the prize year with suitable adjustments to be made for career breaks post-PhD (for example, maternity/paternity leave or military service).

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 Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications.

To nominate a candidate, please provide the following documents:

  1. A comprehensive two-page Curriculum Vitae (CV) highlighting the nominee's academic background, professional experience, and honors/awards received.
  2. A list of publications.
  3. A document of at most five pages describing the nominee's work and placing it in context for importance. This document should outline the key mathematical contributions, their significance, and their impact on their respective field(s).
  4. Between two and four letters of recommendation.

More information about the Wolfgang Doeblin Prize and past awardees can be found at https://www.bernoullisociety.org/prizes?id=158

Each nomination should be sent by April 12, 2024.

Nominations should be communicated to the Award Committee by sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with subject heading: Doeblin Prize 2024.


We are pleased to share announce that on May 29-31, 2024, a conference will be held in memory of Ole E. Barndorff-Nielsen, a valued scientist and the first editor-in-chief of the Bernoulli Journal.

Ole E. Barndorff-Nielsen Memorial Conference, taking place at the Department of Mathematics, Aarhus University, Denmark. The aim of the conference is to cover many of the numerous fields of science that Ole E. Barndorff-Nielsen contributed to and to address recent research developments in these fields. A prominent list of speakers will be presenting their work at the conference. Please see the conference website for the full list of speakers, as well as for further details on the conference.

Winner of the David G. Kendall Award for Young Researchers announced

The BS and RSS is pleased to announce this years’ winner of the David G. Kendall Award for Young Researchers: congratulations to Qiyang Han!

The biannual award is presented  jointly by the RSS and the Bernoulli Society to a young researcher that has made a significant contribution to the alternating fields of mathematical statistics or probability theory. David G. Kendall (1918–2007) was the first president of the Bernoulli Society and recipient of the RSS Guy Medal in Silver (1955) and in Gold (1981).

This year, the award recognises Rutgers University Assistant Professor Qiyang Han for his outstanding contributions to, among other things, empirical process theory, nonparametric inference under shape constraints and asymptotics for multivariate models.

Qiyang  receives a prize of 2,000 euros and, as this year’s award is being given for contributions to mathematical statistics, is also invited to give the Kendall Lecture at the 2024 RSS Annual International Conference.  

Read here for more about the award and here about the RSS.


Eva Loecherbach will replace the current editor of Stochastic Processes and their Applications - Matthias Loewe, and her term will commence at the end of March 2024.
