Meeting Announcement

We are pleased to announce that in 2010 the 15th meeting in this series will take place in Austria. Our plan is to organize a wonderful and interesting weekend at a lovely place called Bildungshaus Chorherrenstift Vorau. This conference venue is part of the well known monastery Augustiner Chorherrenstift Vorau near Hartberg in the northeastern corner of Styria. Participating countries are Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Italy, and Croatia.

It has turned out that every event in this series of meetings succesfully established a platform especially for younger statisticians without major experience in giving talks in English to an international audience. We always tried to support them during their first steps in the scientific world by providing the nearly stressfree environment of a YSM. An interesting variety of different topics from the large scope of statistics should be covered and no limitation on any special topic will be given. The conference language will be English.

The Scientific Programme will only include oral presentations of about 30 minutes each given by younger statisticians. Usually these are very well prepared and of excellent quality. Youngsters interested in participating should contact the representative of the according country from the International Programme Committee.
