***Bernoull-IMS One World Symposium is a success

The virtual one week symposium on Probability and Mathematical Statistics, was held from August 24 to 28, 2020 . There were 4 plenary speakers and 7 (young research awardees) early career speakers who gave live talks (two times each) to a worldwide audience. The main part of the program contained 23 live discussion sessions conducted over a 24 hour clock across various time-zones. These sessions featured a selection of 600 prerecorded research talks that were uploaded by researchers from across the world. Over 2500 participants registered worldwide, interacting outside of talk in zoom rooms via virtual coffee gardens and ice breaker sessions.

***In Memoriam: Willem R. van Zwet

Former BS President Willem R. van Zwet passed away on July 2, 2020 in Oegstgeest, The Netherlands, at the age of 86. He had served the Bernoulli Society in several eminent functions, most notably as member and chair of the European Regional Committee (1969–1980) that organizes the European Meetings of Statisticians, as BS President (1987–1989), and as Editor-in-Chief of Bernoulli (2000-2003). In the early 1970s Willem was among the founding fathers of the Bernoulli Society. The Bernoulli Society and the academic world of Stochastics mourn the loss of one of their most eminent members.

Foreword 

Dear Members of the Bernoulli Society,These are times of hardship and worry for all of us, and I hope that we will survive this without great damage. As more or less expected, we had to postpone our World Congress in Seoul this August, due to travel restrictions worldwide, but also out of responsibility for our speakers and participants, also for all local helpers. Our sympathy is with all of them, and in particular with the local organizing committee, led by Hee-Seok Oh, and all other colleagues who have worked so hard for many years for this important Congress to happen. The Bernoulli-IMS World Congress has been postponed to July 19-23, 2021. The Young Researcher Meeting will also be postponed and happen during July 17-18, 2021.


I am grateful to all colleagues, who have started virtual seminars and workshops. The Bernoulli Society is very happy to help distribute these activities, and you find some examples below, and on our website. In particular, in these times it is important to keep our community in close contact, as by offering some initiatives in particular to young researchers. Please send such announcements to the publicity secretary Leonardo T. Rolla <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> for processing.Hopefully we all stay healthy and in good spirits!

Claudia Klüppelberg (President of the Bernoulli Society)
