On behalf of the Statistical Society of Australia and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, the organising committee invite you to attend the joint Australian Statistical Conference & IMS Annual Meeting, to be held 7–10 July, 2014, at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney, Australia.

Delegates from all areas of statistics will join with world class Australian and international statisticians and mathematicians to benefit from the excellent opportunities for presentations on a wide range of topics recognizing the role that statistics plays in all aspects of modern life.

The conference objectives are to:
• attract world class statisticians to share their knowledge and expertise,
• inform delegates about new work and developments in statistics, probability and mathematical statistics,
• provide an opportunity for professionals from all of these areas to network, present and discuss ideas.

A high caliber contingent of keynote speakers will be brought together at this premier event:
For ASC: James Brown, University of Southampton; Adrian Baddeley, University of Western Australia; Sheila Bird, Cambridge University; Rob Tibshirani, Stanford University
For IMS: Thomas G. Kurtz, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Peter Donnelly, University of Oxford; Terry Lyons, University of Oxford; Nina Gantert, Technische Universität München; Martin Hairer, University of Warwick; Timo Seppäläinen, University of Wisconsin–Madison; Matthew Stephens, University of Chicago; Harrison Zhou, Yale University

The conference will also feature a wide-ranging program incorporating the following themes:
