Bernoulli Society New Researcher Award 2025:

The Bernoulli Society welcomes applications to the New Researcher Award 2025. Each awardee shall deliver a talk at a special invited session during the 65th ISI World Statistics Congress to be held in The Hague from October 5-10, 2025, and will receive a funding up to 1000 EUR to offset travel and other expenses. Bernoulli News will publish their pictures and a paragraph about their work.

Eligible candidates are active researchers in Mathematical Statistics who obtained the PhD degree on or after June 15th, 2019, and who are regular members of the Bernoulli Society. An extension may be given to those having had disruptions after receiving the PhD, such as parenthood. Diversity among the awardees is one of the Society’s goals, and therefore women and members of under- represented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.


Candidates should apply through the web form here and send the required documents to the e-mail address indicated in the form.

Deadline: June 15th, 2024


Bernoulli Society is excited to announce a call for proposals for hosting the European Meeting of Statisticians (EMS) in 2026, 2027 and 2029

Bernoulli announces a call for proposals for the European Meeting of Statisticians (EMS) 2026, 2027 and 2029. The European Meetings of Statisticians are central events for statistics and probability in Europe and worldwide. The meetings should be the natural forum where all European statisticians and probabilists meet to exchange ideas and learn about the latest scientific developments. The EMS is typically held in June or July at a time of year that helps maximize attendance, although timing may vary depending on the local circumstances of the chosen venue. The venue should be a location accessible to a large proportion of Bernoulli membership and European researchers.

Anyone interested in hosting either EMS 2026, EMS 2027 or EMS 2029 should contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  who can provide detailed information for guidance on what is required. Pre-proposals to host EMS 2026 are encouraged to be sent by June 15, 2024 and will receive prompt feedback. Proposals are expected to be finalized by July 31, 2024.


Dear members of the Bernoulli Society
 
This is to warn you that in the last couple of days a phishing attempt is underway, targeting members of our Society. The author poses as the as the Society's president, and asks for urgent help and/or a wire transfer.

The Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability has extended the call for nominations for the 2024 Wolfgang Doeblin Prize.

Aapplications can be submitted until April 12, 2024.

The Wolfgang Doeblin Prize, which was founded in 2011 and is generously sponsored by Springer, is awarded biannually to a single individual who is in the beginning of his or her mathematical career, for outstanding research in the field of probability theory.  Nominees should normally be within 10 (calendar) years from getting their PhD to the prize year with suitable adjustments to be made for career breaks post-PhD (for example, maternity/paternity leave or military service).

The awardee will be invited to submit to the journal Probability Theory and Related Fields a paper for publication as the Wolfgang Doeblin Prize Article, and will also be invited to present the Doeblin Prize Lecture at a Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications.

To nominate a candidate, please provide the following documents:

  1. A comprehensive two-page Curriculum Vitae (CV) highlighting the nominee's academic background, professional experience, and honors/awards received.
  2. A list of publications.
  3. A document of at most five pages describing the nominee's work and placing it in context for importance. This document should outline the key mathematical contributions, their significance, and their impact on their respective field(s).
  4. Between two and four letters of recommendation.

More information about the Wolfgang Doeblin Prize and past awardees can be found at https://www.bernoullisociety.org/prizes?id=158

Each nomination should be sent by April 12, 2024.

Nominations should be communicated to the Award Committee by sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with subject heading: Doeblin Prize 2024.


We are pleased to share announce that on May 29-31, 2024, a conference will be held in memory of Ole E. Barndorff-Nielsen, a valued scientist and the first editor-in-chief of the Bernoulli Journal.

Ole E. Barndorff-Nielsen Memorial Conference, taking place at the Department of Mathematics, Aarhus University, Denmark. The aim of the conference is to cover many of the numerous fields of science that Ole E. Barndorff-Nielsen contributed to and to address recent research developments in these fields. A prominent list of speakers will be presenting their work at the conference. Please see the conference website for the full list of speakers, as well as for further details on the conference.

Winner of the David G. Kendall Award for Young Researchers announced

The BS and RSS is pleased to announce this years’ winner of the David G. Kendall Award for Young Researchers: congratulations to Qiyang Han!

The biannual award is presented  jointly by the RSS 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).

This year, the award recognises Rutgers University Assistant Professor Qiyang Han for his outstanding contributions to, among other things, empirical process theory, nonparametric inference under shape constraints and asymptotics for multivariate models.

Qiyang  receives a prize of 2,000 euros and, as this year’s award is being given for contributions to mathematical statistics, is also invited to give the Kendall Lecture at the 2024 RSS Annual International Conference.  

Read here for more about the award and here about the RSS.
