Events sponsored and co-sponsored by Bernoulli Society

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

July 19 - 23, 2021

Seoul, South Korea


The congress is the latest in a series organized jointly by the Bernoulli Society and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. Held every four years, the Congress is a worldwide event covering all branches of statistics and probability. This includes theoretical, methodological, applied and computational statistics and probability, as well as stochastic processes. The latest scientific developments in all of these fields are showcased. It will be held at the Seoul National University.

***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 Symposium on Nonparametric Statistics (ISNPS2020)

June 14 – 18, 2021

Paphos, Cyprus


The conference has been postponed to 2021 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.

***Rényi 100 Conference

June 28 - July 1, 2021

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 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

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. 

***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.

***São Paulo School of advanced science on singular SPDEs and their applications

July 20 - 31, 2021

Campinas, Brazil

For many years the stochastics community has built powerful tools to deal with various kinds of SPDEs. However, since long it has been a challenge to deal with SPDEs with a rough input noise that are not classically well posed. Some years ago with works of Hairer, and Imkeller, Gubinelli and Perkowski it sudently became feasible to analyze singular SPDEs. In the first week there will be two introductory mini courses that lay the foundations for the courses of the second week, where newly developed theories and their latest developments will be taught. To round up the program there will be further invited talks, poster sessions and a visit to the LNLS laboratories, the synchroton light laboratories at Campinas.

***6th IMS Asia Pacific Rim Meeting (POSTPONED)

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.

***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.
