***Friends of COPSS

The Bernoulli Society has become a Friend of the Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies: https://community.amstat.org/copss/friends . The Friends of COPSS are affiliated professional societies that also promote discovery and practice of statistical science, but do not hold member status in COPSS. This designation provides an organizational structure to encourage communication and partnerships among statistical societies with an international perspective and broad range of interests.

***New Bernoulli Society Treasurer 

Geoffrey Grimmett (Cambridge, UK) has become our new Treasurer, succeeding Lynne Billard. Many thanks to Lynne for her hard work over the last years!

Since 1991, the annual conference of the Romanian Society of Probability and Statistics brings together academics and students from Romania and abroad to discuss recent developments in research in probability theory and mathematical statistics. This year, the conference will be held at UPT (Politehnica University of Timisoara).

***Frontier Probability Days (FPD’20)

May 8 - 10, 2020

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA


The Frontier Probability Days is a regional workshop, taking place in 2020 at the University of Nevada. Itspurpose is to bring together mathematicians, both regionally and globally, who have an interest in probability and its applications. FPD aims to complement other regional conferences in Probability that are held annually elsewhere in the United States.
