The IMS-Vilnius 2018 Conference will also host contributed presentations, besides the invited sessions.
There will be two major areas in the conference: Probability and Statistics. In the area of Probability there will be oral contributed presentations (20 minutes long) as well as contributions in the form of posters. The topics for contributed sessions will be the same as for the invited ones, with “Probabilistic number theory” as one additional topic which follows the tradition of the Vilnius conferences since 1973.
In the area of Statistics, contributed presentations will be in the form of posters only. The poster sessions are intended to be a highlight of the conference. They will be given attractive slots with no parallel events in the schedule.
We invite submission of abstracts for contributed oral and poster presentations. The abstract of a contributed presentation should not exceed 1 page and should contain the title, the name and affiliation of the author(s). In the case you would like your submission to be considered for oral presentation, please indicate the invited session in Probability most closely related to your contribution, and also if your submission could be considered for poster presentation instead. The abstracts (pdf file; template for abstracts in Latex will be placed on the homepage of the conference soon) should reach the Conference Secretariat by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org ) before 1st of April 2018. We will inform about acceptance and the form of the contributed presentation by the 20th of April.
