The IMS NRC 2023 will be held at the University of Toronto from August 2–5, 2023, in its usual spot right before JSM. The organizers have several panels planned, from publishing to funding, mentoring, promotion, and so on. We seek to provide participants with a broad array of topics covering areas where a young researcher may face potential challenges, and hold a discussion surrounding these, all the while providing opportunities to ask questions of senior researchers on these topics. We also hope young folks form connections with each other through the NRC that can last as a solid long-term network in their careers.

Invited speakers and panelists: Peter Bühlmann, ETH Zurich; Jianqing Fan, Princeton University; Paul Fearnhead, Lancaster University; Chao Gao, University of Chicago (IMS Tweedie New Researcher Award Recipient 2021); Yulia Gel, The University of Texas at Dallas; Xuming He, University of Michigan; Jonathan Niles-Weed, New York University (IMS Tweedie New Researcher Award Recipient 2023); Annie Qu, University of California Irvine; Nancy Reid, University of Toronto; Dylan Small, University of Pennsylvania; Michael Stein, Rutgers University; Lan Wang, University of Miami; and Leilei Zeng, University of Waterloo.

The application deadline for the conference is April 24, 2023. We urge all young researchers within the eligibility criteria (received a PhD in or after 2016, or expects to receive one by the end of 2023) to apply. More details can be found on the conference website:
