Bernoulli-IMS Young Researchers Pre-Meeting 2021
ONLINE July 17–18, 2021
The Bernoulli Society and the IMS are co-sponsoring a two-day pre-meeting for Young Researchers (broadly defined as doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows or equivalent, and even early-stage assistant professors/lecturers) right before the Bernoulli–IMS 10th World Congress in Probability and Statistics [see announcement above]. This event will be virtual; following the original plans, the event will be hosted according to the time zone of Seoul, Korea (GMT+9). Registration (free) is required for access to the program.
The main objectives are: (1) to stimulate interest of international young researchers in a rapidly emerging field; (2) to give support and perspective to young researchers with regard to mapping out their future career, especially those from developing countries; and (3) to allow young researchers with common research interests to network amongst their peer group.
The two-day Young Researchers pre-meeting 2021 dedicates the first day to the academic theme of Data Science. The second day is dedicated to a series of presentations and group discussions that pertain to career development. The invited/plenary speakers of full-length talks include Claudia Klüppelberg (Technical University Munich, and President of Bernoulli Society), Song-Xi Chen (Iowa State University and Peking University), Eric Laber (Duke University), Myunghee Cho Paik (Seoul National University), Andreas Kyprianou (University of Bath), Yunjin Choi (University of Seoul), and Parthanil Roy (Indian Statistical Institute). This is complemented by several mini-talks, group discussion, and poster session by the young participants. There will be ample networking opportunities for the young participants via innovative “virtual coffee break” or similar platforms.
