Call for Contributed Talks and Sessions for the 2022 IMS Annual Meeting: closes 15 February, 2022

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. Following requests from members of our community, the conference is accepting proposals for Topic Contributed Sessions. Each 90-minute session consists of four talks. A successful proposal should contain the session title, the name, affiliation and email address of the organizer or chair, and, for each of the four speakers, their name, affiliation, email address, title and abstract (no more than 300 characters each). The deadline for submissions is 15 February, 2022. Decisions for acceptance will be made by 15 March 2022.

Travel awards are available for Graduate Students and New Researchers: see here.

The keynote speakers are listed on the meeting website, at 

In addition to the three special sessions previously announced (the Royal Statistical Society Invited Session, the Lawrence Brown PhD Student Award Session [see article on page 4], and the IMS New Researchers Group Session [details forthcoming]), there will be a Special Invited Session on Grace Wahba’s Contributions, as the inaugural Grace Wahba Award will be delivered at the meeting, by Michael I. Jordan.
