There were many topics covered during the conference by invited and special organised sessions, so special thanks to those makingefforts in organising these sesssions, they did an outstanding job by bringingtogether researchers of special expertise, to share their knowledge with the audience.

Again, we would like to express our gratitude to our sponsors for their support:

Dear Conference Participants,

The Organising Committee is working perpetually on the Programme, including the Abstract Book, and session scheduling. As a result, below you can find and download a PRELIMINARY VERSION of the Abstract Book for orientation.
Please note that it is only a working copy under edition, (containing e.g. file names that will NOT be part of the book, etc.). So, CHANGES are still very much possible. The final version of the EMS2013 Abstract Book expected to be downloadable in the beginning of July and participants will be provided a hard copy when registering for the event.

You can download the Preliminary EMS 2013 Abstract Book HERE.

Those who submitted their abstracts individually, may find the code of their Contributed Session next to their abstracts, dynamically linked to the "Session Index". In the Index you can also find the session title, a list of researchers authoring the session presentations, and a dynamic (clickable) link to their abstracts.
The presenter's name can only be inferred from the abstract (ALL CAPS author).

The Organising Committee is ready to consider comments to improve the session arrangements and the Abstract Book.
In particular, if you notice any mistyping or other irregularity, please let us know at ems2013@congress.hu.

In very limited cases it might also be possible to change a session arrangement, along very strong arguments, and exact and accurate suggestions, not changing the structure of the sessions. Please note that given the complexity of the arrangements it is not possible to accommodate all requests, especially, when participants wish to be present only in a small fraction of the conference time.

The time scheduling of the presentations will be announced on short notice.

Thank you very much for your patience.

The European Regional Committee of the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability, the community of Hungarian statisticians and probabilists and the organisers cordially invite their colleagues to participate in the 29th European Meeting of Statisticians, to be held in Budapest, Hungary, from 20 to 25 July 2013.

The event

The European Meeting of Statisticians is uniquely the broadest and most prestigious regular meeting of the profession in Europe, having long history and well established traditions. Two distinguishing feature of the current occasion are worth being emphasized, however. Beyond providing a natural forum for exchange of ideas for European statisticians and probabilists, particular organisational effort has been made to represent both traditional and newly emerging ties of the European professionals with the whole World. Hence, we expect colleagues from India, China, South-East Asia, the Middle-East, North- and Latin-America to participate in greater than usual number. It is also the ambition of the organisers to stimulate the inseminating tie between probability and statistics by a balanced representation of intertwined topics of both disciplines.

The framework of these specialities is provided by the year 2013 itself as it brings a number of celebrating anniversaries, connected to our profession. The year 2013 marks the 300th anniversary of both the posthumous publication of Jacob Bernoulli's "Ars Conjectandi", and the St Petersburg Paradox. The 250th anniversary of the posthumous presentation to the Royal Society of Thomas Bayes' essay on the problem of "inverse probability" commences also in 2013. The Bernoulli Society sees EMS2013 as the perfect occasion to celebrate these events with due respect and consideration.

Organised discussion sessions may provide excellent occasions for talking over or debating on issues like free access to publications, assessment of the originality of scientific works, measurements of scientific accomplishments, and the access of the profession to the now changing European funding resources.
