Annoucement of ISNPS III

First announcement of the 3rd conference of the International Society for Non-Parametric Statistics (ISNPS) , Avignon 11-16 June 2016

Dear colleagues,

Following the successful ISNPS Conferences in Chalkidiki , Greece and Cadix, Spain, we are pleased to announce that the 3rd ISNPS Conference will take place in the international conference center of the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, France, June 11th -16th, 2016.


Avignon is located in the south of France, 50 miles from Marseille Airport, but also easily reachable from Lyon (55min from Lyon Saint-Exupery Airport by direct high speed trains, TGV) or from Paris (2h40 by TGV, connected with flights). Avignon has also its own airport (with a few flights from United-Kingdom and Ireland as well as other european countries, during the summer).

The city of Avignon, city of the Popes in the 14th century, capital of theater during the summer, is an unique town in France. Its province, La Provence, is an exceptional area with beautiful towns (Nimes, Arles, Orange) and landscapes, including the saw-toothed Dentelles de Montmirail mountains. The city is close to the sea and the famous "Camargue" (50km). The world-renowned vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape extend north of Avignon to Orange, a city famous for its Roman antiquities. Several hotels as well as rooms for students in Avignon will be reserved for the ISNPS conference at reasonable prices.

Just like for the preceding conferences, the 3rd ISNPS conference will put together recent advances and trends in several areas of nonparametric statistics. The conference will be a perfect place to facilitate the exchange of research ideas, promote collaboration between researchers from all over the world and contribute to the further development of the field. The scientific program (scheduled from June 12th to the 16th with a pause on the 14th) will include plenary talks, special invited talks, invited sessions as well as contributed talks and posters on all areas of nonparametric statistics.

We are looking forward to seeing you in june 2016 in Avignon. More informations on the invited sessions and invited speakers will be available on the website of the conference in the coming months.
