Sankhya solicits contributions

Bimal K. Roy, Director of the Indian Statistical Institute, writes:

Sankhya Series A plans to publish a special issue on Application of Concentration Inequalities and Empirical Processes to Modern Statistics as Part II of Volume 78, scheduled to come out in August 2016. The special issue will contain five invited papers on the topic, one of which will be a discussion paper. In addition, we plan to also include a few contributed research papers on the above topic in the special issue.

On behalf of the Editorial Board of Series A, it is my pleasure to invite contributions for the special issue. Submissions for the special issue should be of no more than 25 pages in the Sankhya journal format and should include the phrase “(Special Issue)” following the title. All submissions for the special issue should be made on the submission website for Sankhya Series A (http://www.springer.com/statistics/journal/13171: see the “Instructions to Authors” page) and should be made no later than 15 November 2015. Needless to say that all such submissions will go through the usual review process of our journal. Because of the size constraint on individual issues, we may be able to accept no more than five contributed papers for publication in the special issue.

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!
