in Statistics and Probability

Harvard University, July 31-August 2, 2014

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 2014 edition will be the 16th 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.

Anyone who has received a Ph.D. on or after 2009, or expects to receive a Ph.D. by the end of 2014, is eligible to attend, though participation is by invitation only. Go to the application page for more information.

Note that the meeting is to be held just prior to the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM), which will be in downtown Boston, several miles from the Harvard campus in Cambridge.
