Highlighted Events

*** Bernoulli-IMS 10th World Congress in Probability and Statistics (BS-IMS-WC)

July 19 - 23, 2021

Seoul, South Korea (Virtual)

Due to the situation around the COVID-19, travel restrictions and the uncertainty of worldwide participation, the Organizing Committee has decided to convert the 10th World Congress in Probability and Statistics into a Virtual Congress based on Zoom format for the planned period, in consideration of our participants’ safety as well as their intellectual aspirations. Therefore, we would like to invite all our global members to participate in the Virtual. This quadrennial joint meeting is of steadily increasing importance to the scientific vitality of the fields of statistics and probability and their applications. This Congress will have 14 (plenary) named lectures, one public lecture, 40 invited sessions featuring 120 speakers, a number of Contributed talks, and Poster sessions. 

***Bernoulli-IMS Young Researchers Pre-Meeting 2021

July 17 - 18, 2021

Seoul, Korea (Virtual)

The Bernoulli Society and the IMS are co-sponsoring a two-day pre-meeting for young researchers right before the Bernoulli-IMS World Congress in Korea. The main objectives of the pre-meeting in 2021 are: (1) to stimulate interest of international young researchers in a rapidly emerging field; (2) to give support and perspective to young researchers with regard to mapping out their future career - especially for participants from developing countries; and (3) to allow young researchers with common research interests to network amongst their peer group. The two-day Young Researchers pre-meeting 2021 dedicates the first day to the academic theme of Data Science. The second day is dedicated to a series of presentations and group discussions that pertain to career development. This is complemented by several mini-talks, group discussion, and poster session by the young participants.

***63rd ISI World Statistics Congress 2021 (ISI-WSC)

July 11 - 15, 2021

The Hague, Netherlands

The scientific programme will introduce the latest developments in statistical research and practice through presentations, discussions and a series of short courses; the virtual exhibition will showcase the work and products of those who support our profession. Everyone working in the field of Statistics is welcome to join us virtually for the 63rd WSC.

Other Events sponsored and co-sponsored by Bernoulli Society


***Frontier Probability Days (FPD’20)

May 16-18, 2021

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

The Frontier Probability Days is a regional workshop, now postponed to 2021 at the University of Nevada. Its purpose 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.

***International Conference on Robust Statistics (ICORS)

June 28 – July 2, 2021

Vienna, Austria

The conference has been an annual international conference since 2001. The aim of the conferences is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in robust statistics, data analysis and related areas. This includes theoretical and applied statisticians as well as data analysts from other fields, and leading experts as well as junior researchers and graduate students.

***Extreme Value Analysis (EVA 2021)

June 28 – July 2, 2021

Edinburgh, UK (Virtual)

The conference brings together researchers in Extreme Value Theory, Methods and its Applications. The conference will take place at the University of Edinburgh. Short courses will be held on 26-27 June 2021. 

***22nd European Young Statisticians Meeting (EYSM 2021)

September 6 - 10, 2021

Athens, Greece

The European Young Statisticians Meetings is a series of conferences that is organized by and for young European statisticians. The meeting will take place online. Participation is by invitation only.

***6th IMS Asia Pacific Rim Meeting

January 2022

Melbourne, Australia

The Institute of Mathematical Statistics APRM will provide an excellent forum for scientific communications and collaborations for the researchers in Asia and the Pacific Rim, and promote communications and collaborations between the researchers in this area and those from other parts of the world. The program covers 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 and in applications Invited session proposals are now being considered.

***Rényi 100 Conference

June 20 - 23, 2022

Budapest, Hungary

Alfréd Rényi was born on the 20th of March 1921. To celebrate this occasion, the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences are organizing a high-profile conference, representing modern probability, graph theory and networks, information theory, dynamical systems, number theory and other fields in Rényi's spirit. That is: not respecting strictly the borders between these and possibly other areas of pure and applied mathematics.

***International Symposium on Nonparametric Statistics (ISNPS2022)

June 20 – 24, 2022

Paphos, Cyprus

The conference has been postponed to 2022 and it will bring forth recent advances and trends in several areas of nonparametric statistics, in order to facilitate the exchange of research ideas, promote collaboration among researchers from all over the world, and contribute to the further development of the field. The program will include plenary talks, special invited talks, invited talks, contributed talks and posters on all areas of nonparametric statistics.

***42nd Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications (SPA)

June 27 - July 1, 2022

Wuhan, China

Previously scheduled for July 2021, the conference will take place in 2022. SPA Conferences are organized under patronage of the Bernoulli Society and can justifiably be regarded as the most important international scientific meeting on the theory and applications of stochastic processes. They are held annually except for the years when the World Congress in Probability and Statistics takes place. This iteration will be hosted by Wuhan University. 

***33rd European Meeting of Statisticians (EMS 2022)

July 18 - 22, 2022

Moscow, Russia

The European Meeting of Statisticians (EMS), sponsored by the European Regional Committee of the Bernoulli Society, is the main statistics conference in Europe. Statisticians of all ages and from all regions will meet to exchange ideas and discuss the latest developments in the broad field of statistics and probability theory. The meeting is typically held every other year.
