Bernoulli Society Golden Jubilee
Join us this year in celebrating 50 years of the Bernoulli Society at the 11th World Congress in Bochum (August 12-16, 2024), and throughout the year. To mark the occasion, we have introduced a "50 year logo" (below, and on our homepage banner). Feel free to use it in any fitting context to celebrate our Society. Read about our Society's history here, and stay tuned for more!
We are delighted to announce two new appointments. Corina Constantinescu (University of Liverpool, United Kingdom) is the new Publicity Secretary, taking over from Leonardo T. Rolla since January 2024. Eva Loecherbach (University Paris 1, France) will be the new Chief Editor for SPA. She will succeed Matthias Loewe, and her term will commence at the end of March 2024. We extend our sincere gratitude to Leonardo T. Rolla and Matthias Loewe for their dedicated service over the past years.
David G. Kendall Award for Young Researchers – Recipient
The winner of the 2024 David G. Kendall Award for Young Researchers is Qiyang Han (Rutgers University, USA). The biannual award is presented jointly by the Royal Statistical Society and the Bernoulli Society to a young researcher that has made a significant contribution to the alternating fields of mathematical statistics or probability theory. David G. Kendall (1918–2007) was the first president of the Bernoulli Society and recipient of the RSS Guy Medal in Silver (1955) and in Gold (1981).
