The 2017 Itô Prize is won by Adrián González Casanova, Noemi Kurt, Anton Wakolbinger and Linglong Yuan, for their paper entitled “An individual-based model for the Lenski experiment, and the deceleration of the relative fitness” published in Stochastic Processes and Their Applications. The Itô Prize honors the memory and celebrates the legacy of Professor Kiyosi Itô and his vast and seminal contributions to probability theory. It is awarded every two years and recognizes significant contributions to the advancement of the theory or applications of stochastic processes over the corresponding period. The award will be presented at the 39th Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications (SPA), July 24–28, 2017, in Moscow, Russia, where the authors will give a plenary talk (http://www.spa2017.org/). The paper is freely available to access until the end of 2017 via ScienceDirect: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S030441491600020X.

Welcome!

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!
