The 2022 IMS Annual Meeting will be held in London, UK, June 27-30. We plan to hold a normal in-person conference, but with an online format as a fall-back option.

Submissions for contributed talks in Probability and Statistics are open now. Each submission should contain:

1. An indication of whether the talk is in either Probability or Statistics

2. The name, affiliation and email address of the speaker

3. The title and abstract (no more than 300 characters)

Submissions will be judged on importance, novelty, impact and timeliness.

The deadline for submissions is 15 February, 2022. Decisions for acceptance will be made by 15 March 2022.

Keynote Speakers lined up

The list of keynote addresses includes the inaugural Grace Wahba Lecture (by Michael I. Jordan); the Wald Lectures (Martin Hairer); the Neyman Lecture (Heping Zhang); the Rietz Lecture (Hans-Georg Müller); and five Medallion Lectures (Sylvia Serfaty, Rodrigo Bañuelos, Rina Foygel Barber, Vlada Limic and Roman Vershynin). In addition, Russell Lyons will be delivering the IMS/BS Schramm Lecture, and Krzysztof Burdzy will give the IMS Presidential Address. 

Special Sessions

There will also be three special sessions: a Royal Statistical Society Invited Session, the Lawrence Brown PhD Student Award Session, and the IMS New Researchers Group Session. We’ll bring you more details on these as plans develop.
