The Nordic Conference on Mathematical Statistics (NORDSTAT) is a meeting place for probabilists and statisticians from the countries in Northern Europe. NORDSTAT also welcomes participants from countries outside Scandinavia, in particular from our close neighbours in the Baltic states. The official language at all sessions of this international conference is English. The focus is on recent research in the Nordic countries, but we are also very happy to announce that the conference will be attended by a few specially invited guests from overseas.


Now a detailed time schedule is availabe.

NORDSTAT 2002 is planned to have four main themes in plenar sessions with invited speakers and discussants, and 12 partially parallel theme sessions with contributed papers, organized by the convenors listed below. The parallel sessions give both established researchers and PhD students an opportunity to present their latest work and gain new contacts.

Attendants who wants to make a contribution to a parallel session should contact the convenor by no later than April 1, 2002, submitting a title and a short abstract.

(Foto) NORDSTAT will take place at Kräftriket, which is the location of the Maths department (including Mathematical Statistics) of Stockholm University. Kräftriket is situated by the lake of Brunnsviken (connected to the Baltic Sea), just outside the inner town of Stockholm, 3 km from the central station. In June, the weather is most often good for a stroll in the beautiful park-like surroundings of the lake. The conference main sessions will take place at Wallenbergsalen (sketch and photo). Here is a map showing the location of Wallenbergsalen and the other conference buildning.
