IMS Special Lectures in 2017

The IMS sponsors several series of Special Invited Lectures, which are given by distinguished scientists at regular IMS meetings. The IMS Committee on Special Lectures chooses the recipients. Special Lectures are distinct from ordinary invited papers, which are chosen by the Program Committees for each meeting, and they are usually longer in length. Special lectures are of two types: named lectures (Wald, Neyman, Rietz, Le Cam, Blackwell and Schramm) and medallion lectures. Eight medallion lecturers are selected from the fields of Statistics and Probability each year.

In 2017, the Special Lectures will be given by:
Wald: Emmanuel Candes
Blackwell: Martin Wainwright
Schramm: Richard Kenyon
Eight Medallion lecturers: Thomas Mikosch, Takashi Kumagai, Marta Sanz-Solé, Edoardo Airoldi, Emery Brown, Subhashis Ghosal, Mark Girolami and Judith Rousseau.
