Sankhya Series A plans to publish a special issue on Application of Concentration Inequalities and Empirical Processes to Modern Statistics as Part II of Volume 78, scheduled to come out in August 2016. The special issue will contain five invited papers on the topic, one of which will be a discussion paper. In addition, we plan to also include a few contributed research papers on the above topic in the special issue.

On behalf of the Editorial Board of Series A, it is my pleasure to invite contributions for the special issue. Submissions for the special issue should be of no more than 25 pages in the Sankhya journal format and should include the phrase “(Special Issue)” following the title. All submissions for the special issue should be made on the submission website for Sankhya Series A ( see the “Instructions to Authors” page) and should be made no later than 15 November 2015. Needless to say that all such submissions will go through the usual review process of our journal. Because of the size constraint on individual issues, we may be able to accept no more than five contributed papers for publication in the special issue.
