Dozens of universities, research institutes, foundations, and scientific societies, including the IMS, have joined forces to celebrate 2013 as a special year for the Mathematics of Planet Earth (see Hans Künsch’s cover article). The Annals of Applied Statistics has been publishing cutting edge research in this area for five years, including the physical, ecological, and socioeconomic aspects of our planet. As a prelude to MPE2013, the December 2012 issue of the Annals of Applied Statistics will feature a special section dedicated to this theme. See forthcoming papers.
Welcome to the new and improved 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 email@example.com
With this new blog website, we are introducing a new feature, the Open Forum. Any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (send this to firstname.lastname@example.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!
The Institute of Mathematical Statistics is an international scholarly society devoted to the development and dissemination of the theory and applications of statistics and probability. We have about 4,500 members around the world. Visit IMS at http://imstat.org
