IMS Vilnius meeting

The 12th International Vilnius Conference on Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics and the 2018 IMS Annual Meeting took place July 2–6, 2018, in Vilnius, Lithuania. The Organizing Committee co-chairs, Remigijus Leipus and Erwin Bolthausen, together with the Program Committee co-chairs, Vygantas Paulauskas and Peter Bühlmann, said, “Over 430 participants from 45 countries gave their time and resources to attend and to contribute to the meeting. Hopefully you enjoyed both the scientific part and the social program and that you used the opportunity to extend your existing networks. We are sure that cooperation with most of you will continue in near future.” You can see photos from the meeting in the September 2018 Bulletin, and you’ll find more photos at

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
