|Title:||29th European Meeting of Statisticians
The European Regional Committee of the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability, the community of Hungarian statisticians and probabilists and the organisers cordially invite their colleagues to participate in the 29th European Meeting of Statisticians, to be held in Budapest, Hungary, from 20 to 25 July 2013.
The European Meeting of Statisticians is uniquely the broadest and most prestigious regular meeting of the profession in Europe, having long history and well established traditions. Two distinguishing feature of the current occasion are worth being emphasized, however. Beyond providing a natural forum for exchange of ideas for European statisticians and probabilists, particular organisational effort has been made to represent both traditional and newly emerging ties of the European professionals with the whole World. Hence, we expect colleagues from India, China, South-East Asia, the Middle-East, North- and Latin-America to participate in greater than usual number. It is also the ambition of the organisers to stimulate the inseminating tie between probability and statistics by a balanced representation of intertwined topics of both disciplines.
The framework of these specialities is provided by the year 2013 itself as it brings a number of celebrating anniversaries, connected to our profession. The year 2013 marks the 300th anniversary of both the posthumous publication of Jacob Bernoulli's "Ars Conjectandi", and the St Petersburg Paradox. The 250th anniversary of the posthumous presentation to the Royal Society of Thomas Bayes' essay on the problem of "inverse probability" commences also in 2013. The Bernoulli Society sees EMS2013 as the perfect occasion to celebrate these events with due respect and consideration.
Organised discussion sessions may provide excellent occasions for talking over or debating on issues like free access to publications, assessment of the originality of scientific works, measurements of scientific accomplishments, and the access of the profession to the now changing European funding resources.
