Most of these will be delivered at the IMS Annual Meeting in Vilnius, held in conjunction with the 12th International Vilnius Conference on Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics (July 2–6, 2018). The Wald Lectures will be delivered by Luc Devroye; the 2018 Le Cam Lecturer is Ruth Williams; the Neyman Lecturer is Peter Bühlmann, and the Schramm Lecturer is Yuval Peres. Six Medallion lectures will also be given at this meeting, by Jean Bertoin, Svante Janson, Thomas Mikosch, Sonia Petrone, Richard Samworth and Allan Sly. See
