We publish a regular Student Puzzle Corner, for student members of the IMS: you can find past puzzles here. We also invite the IMS Special Invited Lecturers to write a preview article for the IMS Bulletin, in advance (normally) of their lecture: you can read some of these here. We also publish obituaries of IMS members and Fellows, you can read those here.
