IMS Logo 14th Meeting of New Researchers
in Statistics and Probability

University of California, San Diego, July 26-28, 2012

About the meeting

The IMS New Researchers Conference in Statistics and Probability is an annual conference organized under the auspices of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS). It is modeled after the European Young Statisticians Meetings, which is sponsored by the Bernoulli Society. The 2012 edition will be the 14th such conference.

The purpose of the conference is to promote interaction and networking among new researchers in these fields. The participants will present their research via a short expository talk or a poster and mingle throughout the day. There will be longer talks by senior researchers, as well as panels on teaching, on mentoring of graduate students, on publishing and on grant writing. The meeting covers a wide range of topics in statistics and applied statistics, and some probability. Check the program for more information.

Note that the meeting is to be held just prior to the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM), which will be in downtown San Diego, about ten miles from the conference site of the UCSD campus in La Jolla.

Organizing committee (2012): David Anderson (U. Wisconsin), Ery Arias-Castro (UC San Diego), David Dahl (TAMU), Xuanlong Nguyen (U. Michigan), Davy Paindaveine (U. Bruxelles), Soumik Pal (U. Washington), Debashis Paul (UC Davis), Aarti Singh (CMU), Amandine Veber (Ecole Polytechnique), Shuang Wu (Rochester), Nancy Zhang (Stanford).
