2024 Bernoulli Prize for an Outstanding Survey Article in Probability - call for nominations

The Bernoulli Prize for an Outstanding Survey Article in Probability is to recognize authors of an influential survey publication in the area of probability. The paper should be timely in addressing areas of active or emerging importance but have been in circulation long enough for there to be evidence of its impact. The presentation of prize winner will be at the Bernoulli-IMS World Congress in Bochum in August 2024.

The nominations should be sent to Markus Heydenreich at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The deadline for accepting nominations is February 28th, 2023. More information is available at https://www.bernoullisociety.org/priz es?id=156.

Highlighted events

34th European Meeting of Statisticians (EMS)

July 3-7, 2023
Warsaw, Poland

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 next EMS will be held in Warsaw in July 2023. Note that the important dates are approaching (https://ems2023.org/important_dates).

43rd Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications (SPA)

July 24-28, 2023
Lisbon, Portugal

SPA Conferences are organised 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. The next conference will be hosted by the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon.


23rd European Young Statisticians Meeting (EYSM)

September, 2023
Ljubljana, Slovenia

The European Young Statisticians Meetings is a series of conferences that is organized by and for young European statisticians under the auspices of the European Regional Committee of the Bernoulli Society. Participation is by invitation only.


Events sponsored and co-sponsored by Bernoulli Society


Extreme Value Analysis (EVA 2023)

June 26 - July 1, 2023
Milan, Italy

The conference brings together researchers in Extreme Value Theory, Methods and its Applications. The conference will be hosted by Bocconi University.

XVI Latin American Congress of Probability and Mathematical Statistics (CLAPEM)

July 10 – 14, 2023
São Paulo, SP, Brazil

CLAPEM, promoted by the Latin American Society of Probability and Mathematical Statistics (SLAPEM) and the Latin American Regional Committee of the Bernoulli Society, is the main event in these fields in the region. It takes place every two/three years and attracts researchers and students from the most important Latin American centers. A traditional program in a CLAPEM includes a series of short courses to introduce graduate students and young colleagues to major areas of current research and a series of invited plenary talks, invited sessions, and general poster and oral communication sessions.

The congress series is organized by the International Statistical Institute (ISI) and the Bernoulli Society is participating in the series as an association of ISI. It brings together statisticians and data scientists from academia, health sector and business, junior and senior professionals, in an inviting environment.


6th IMS Asia Pacific Rim Meeting

(to be announced) 2024
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.

The One World Probability Seminar


The One World Probability project is an online platform for research seminars, workshops and schools in probability theory. Started during the Covid-19 epidemic in 2020, the project intends to bring together researchers from all over the world in a virtual and inclusive environment.

One World Extremes Seminar


The One World Extremes Seminar is an initiative to keep researchers with an interest in Extreme Value Theory (EVT) virtually connected in novel ways. It features both theoretical advances and important applications of EVT.

Asia-Pacific Seminars in Probability and Statistics


The seminar was created as a permanent forum for good research in the field, with the aim to counterbalance the restrictions imposed by pandemic and to still promote scientific exchange and cooperation. It will run using Zoom.
