This biennial Bernoulli Society Medal aims to recognise special service to the Bernoulli Society. The Medal is in honour of Willem van Zwet, who served Bernoulli Society and its aims in many special ways.

Nominees should have records of sustained and distinguished service to the Society. Nominations should be communicated by email to the Willem van Zwet Medal committee care of The deadline for nominations is noon GMT, Monday 27 June 2022. For more details, both of eligibility for the award and of what is needed for the nomination, please visit

Nominations for the European Regional Committee of Bernoulli Society

According to the statutes of the European Regional Committee of the Bernoulli Society, seven of the sixteen members will step down by the end of 2022. As a result, seven new members need to be elected for a four-year term starting on Jan 1st 2023.

The European Regional Committee nominates the following candidates:

  • Agnes Backhausz (Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary)
  • Heather Battey (Imperial College London, UK)
  • Malgorzata Bogdan (University of Wroclaw, Poland)
  • Ottmar Cronie (University of Gothenburg, Sweden)
  • Hanne Kekkonen (Technical University Delft, Netherlands)
  • Jonas Peters (University of Copenhagen, Denmark)
  • Stijn Vansteelandt (Ghent University, Belgium)

A group of at least five European members of the Bernoulli Society can nominate further candidates. Additional nominations should be sent by email to, including documentation of the support of the five nominating members and of the willingness of the nominees to serve on the committee. Additional nominations will force an election among European members of the Bernoulli Society. If no further nominations are received by Friday, July 29th, 2022, the seven candidates listed above will be declared elected.

Other events sponsored and co-sponsored by Bernoulli Society

One World YoungStatS Webinar

June 29, 2022

The next One World webinar, organized by YoungStatS, will be dedicated to Recent Advancements in Applied Instrumental Variable Methods. Selected young researchers active in this area will present their recent contributions.

The One World Probability Seminar


The One World Probability project is an online platform for research seminars, workshops and schools in probability theory. Started during the Covid-19 epidemic in 2020, the project intends to bring together researchers from all over the world in a virtual and inclusive environment.

One World Extremes Seminar


The One World Extremes Seminar is an initiative to keep researchers with an interest in Extreme Value Theory (EVT) virtually connected in novel ways. It features both theoretical advances and important applications of EVT.

Asia-Pacific Seminars in Probability and Statistics


The seminar was created as a permanent forum for good research in the field, with the aim to counterbalance the restrictions imposed by pandemic and to still promote scientific exchange and cooperation. It will run using Zoom.

Rényi 100 Conference

June 20 – 23, 2022
Budapest, Hungary

Alfréd Rényi was born on the 20th of March 1921. To celebrate this occasion, the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences are organizing a high-profile conference, representing modern probability, graph theory and networks, information theory, dynamical systems, number theory and other fields in Rényi’s spirit. That is: not respecting strictly the borders between these and possibly other areas of pure and applied mathematics.

International Symposium on Nonparametric Statistics (ISNPS2022)

June 20 – 24, 2022
Paphos, Cyprus

The conference has been postponed to 2022 and it will bring forth recent advances and trends in several areas of nonparametric statistics, in order to facilitate the exchange of research ideas, promote collaboration among researchers from all over the world, and contribute to the further development of the field. The program will include plenary talks, special invited talks, invited talks, contributed talks and posters on all areas of nonparametric statistics.

42nd Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications (SPA)

June 27 – July 1, 2022
Wuhan, China

Previously scheduled for July 2021, the conference will take place in 2022. SPA Conferences are organized under the patronage of the Bernoulli Society and can justifiably be regarded as the most important international scientific meeting on the theory and applications of stochastic processes. They are held annually except for the years when the World Congress in Probability and Statistics takes place. This iteration is hosted by Wuhan University. The conference contains 11 plenary talks, including Itô Prize lecture, Medallion lecture, Doeblin Prize lecture, Medallion lecture and Doob lecture. There are 23 invited sessions (including a “Bernoulli Society New Researcher Award” session) and 27 contributed sessions, 150 talks in sum, covering the recent developments in the theory and applications of stochastic processes. Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the conference will be organized in hybrid format: in person for domestic participants and online for international speakers.

Brazilian School of Probability/ São Paulo School of Advanced Science on Singular Stochastic Partial Differential Equations and their Applications

August 2-13, 2022
Campinas, Brazil

The São Paulo school is divided into two parts. In the first week, there will be two introductory mini-courses that lay the foundations for the courses of the second week. The program will be complemented with several plenary talks, invited talks, a poster session and a visit to the LNLS laboratories, where the only particle accelerator of Latin America is located. The school will give full financial support for around 100 students and young researchers (50 from Brazil and 50 from abroad). To ask for financial support the registration deadline is April 15, 2022.

The EBP 20022 will coincide with the second week of the São Paulo School. As in previous years, the EBP will consist of two mini courses, plenary talks, contributed talks and poster sessions, all presented in a relaxed atmosphere. This will be the first edition at IMECC-UNICAMP, which is home to one of Brazil’s top ranked Mathematics departments. More information is available at
