We have the great pleasure in inviting you to the 25th EMS. The meeting will cover all areas of methodological, applied and computational statistics, probability theory and applied probability. There will be 8 special lecturers, 23 ordinary invited sessions and one invited discussion session. The scientific programme is broad, with ample space for applications; invited speakers and sessions have been chosen with the specific aim to appeal to a wide audience and will bridge between theory and practice, inference and stochastic models. The meeting is organised jointly by the University of Oslo and the Norwegian Computing Center.
