The eighth World Congress in Probability and Statistics will be in Istanbul from July 9 to 14, 2012. It is jointly organized by the Bernoulli Society and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. Scheduled every four years, this meeting is a major worldwide event for statistics and probability, covering all its branches, including theoretical, methodological, applied and computational statistics and probability, and stochastic processes. It features the latest scientific developments in these fields.
The program will cover a wide range of topics in statistics and probability, presenting recent developments and the state of the art in a variety of modern research topics, with in-depth sessions on applications of these disciplines to other sciences, industrial innovation and society. It will feature several special plenary lectures presented by leading specialists. In addition, there will be many invited sessions highlighting topics of current research interests, as well as a large number of contributed sessions and posters.
In particular, note that there are various possibilities for financial support, e.g. World bank, NSF and IMS.
General Assembly Meeting
On Thursday 25 August 2011, at 13.30, the Bernoulli Society General Assembly Meeting will take place in the Dublin Convention Centre, Liffey Meeting Room 2, during the 58th ISI World Statistics Congress in Dublin, August, 21-26, 2011. Members and nonmembers of the Society are invited to participate. Voting is reserved to Bernoulli Society members.
The Prize is to honour the scientific work of Wolfgang Doeblin. It will be awarded for outstanding work in the field of probability, to a single individual who is at the beginning of his or her mathematical career.
The Wolfgang Doeblin Prize is generously supported by Springer. 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 a Doeblin Prize Lecture in a later Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications.

Mentor Programme for Ph.D students
A new international web-based mentor programme for Ph.D students in statistics and probability at universities in developing countries is launched, sponsored by the International Statistical Institute and the Bernoulli Society. Ph.D students can enrol for the programme online and are put in contact with volunteer senior statisticians. The programme is based in Oslo, see http://statmentoring.nr.no to find out more on what the programme does. If you wish to join you can enrol as a mentor, or join as a student.
