New Editor for Annals of Applied Probability

Timo Seppäläinen will be the next Editor of The Annals of Applied Probability. Timo is a full professor in the Mathematics Department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He is an IMS Fellow, and has served as Associate Editor for the Annals of Probability and Annals of Applied Probability, and most recently, until December 2011, served as the Editor of Electronic Communications in Probability (see below).

New home for Electronic Journal of Probability and Electronic Communications in Probability

The Electronic Journal of Probability (EJP) and Electronic Communications in Probability (ECP) are electronic journals, jointly sponsored by the IMS and the Bernoulli Society. These journals have a new online home.

Since their inception in 1995, the content of EJP and ECP has been freely available to individuals. Until recently, the published versions of the journals were hosted on servers at the Department of Mathematics, University of Washington. Due to computing environment changes at UW and editorial management needs associated with continued growth of the journals, the contents have recently migrated to new websites at http://ejp.ejpecp.org/ and http://ecp.ejpecp.org/ (the old websites automatically forward to these sites).

The servers for these sites are maintained by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) at Simon Fraser University in Canada. PKP is also the provider of the open source software (OJS) used for editorial management and publishing of the journals. The IMS and the Bernoulli Society are sharing the modest costs.

We encourage you to visit the new websites, to consider submitting an article to EJP or ECP, and ask you to please consider making a donation to the open access fund in support of our open access journals.

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
