The International Society for NonParametric Statistics (ISNPS) was founded by Michael Akritas, Soumendra Lahiri and Dimitris Politis in 2010 with the mission "to foster the research and practice of nonparametric statistics, and to promote the dissemination of new developments in the field via conferences, books and journal publications."

The nature of ISNPS is uniquely global, and its international conferences are designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas and latest advances among researchers from all around the world in cooperation with established statistical societies such as the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS) and the International Statistical Institute (ISI).
