Pre-world-congress Meeting of Young Researchers in Probability

and Statistics 2012 (PWCYPS 2012)

July 6-8, 2012

Koç University, Sariyer, Istanbul, TURKEY


As a satellite meeting to the 8th World Congress in Probability and Statistics (www.worldcong2012.org), and the first of its kind, the Pre-world-congress meeting of young researchers in probability and statistics 2012 (PWCYPS 2012) seeks to promote the active participation of statisticians and probabilists in their graduate education and early careers in the epicentre of the 8th World Congress. The meeting will take place on July 6-8 2012, preceding the 8th World Congress July 9-14, 2012. The venue of the meeting is the beautiful campus of Koc University, Istanbul and the PWCYPS meeting will give the opportunity for young statisticians and probabilists to participate in encouraging and heartening lectures by distinguished lecturers, providing them with a forum where they can build scientific bonds with colleagues in their respective fields.


In addition to interactions with fellow young statisticians, the meeting will allow participants to learn from and interact with some of the leaders of the disciplines who will be attending 8th World Congress in a more informal, compact and conducive environment than the larger main 8th World Congress itself.


Statistical and Probabilistic themes covered in the meeting will be broad and diverse, reflecting the Congress’s character.
