Bernoulli Society Fees for 2011 - 70% reduction now for members from developing countries
The Bernoulli Society Council has recently decided to keep, in general, the same membership fees for 2011 as for 2010, but some new benefits have been added.
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 for the latter membership and subscription was extended for 2011. This list will be subsequently updated with the three lower categories of the classification countries of the World Bank.
Further benefits have been achieved for all BS members like, e.g., a new 15% discount on two journals from the Applied Probability Trust: Advances in Applied Probability and Journal of Applied Probability.
StatProb - New Statistics and Probability Encyclopedia
The Bernoulli Society is one of the sponsers of the recently launched StatProb.com. This is a free online encyclopedia of statistics and probability hosted by Springer and sponsored by leading statistical societies. StatProb.com combines the advantages of traditional wikis (rapid and up-to-date publication, user-generated development, hyperlinking, and a saved history) with traditional publishing (quality assurance, review, and credit to authors). All contributions have been approved by an editorial board chosen by the sponsoring statistical societies. Articles are published in accordance with a Creative Commons license.
New Bernoulli Society Website
We are pleased to announce that the Bernoulli Society website can now be reached via www.bernoulli-society.org. Furthermore the design has been updated based on the new Bernoulli Society Logo. The new site offers us many possibilities for future development, but first of all we hope that it provides our visitors with facts and news in a convenient way. If you have any suggestions or remarks concerning the webpage you may contact the Executive Committee or the Web Editor:
