Second Announcement


Dear Friends,

Continuing the series of Conferences in Mysore, India (2000), Warsaw, Poland (2002-04), Izmir, Turkey (2005), Mashad, Iran (2006), Amman, Jordan (2007), Aachen, Germany (2008), Zagazig, Egypt (2010), Murcia, Spain (2012), the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Nicolaus Copernicus University will host the 11th International Conference on Ordered Statistical Data OSD 2014. The meeting will be held at the Mathematical Research and Conference Center in Będlewo, Poland, June 2nd-6th, 2014.

The conference will bring forth recent advances and trends in the mathematical theory of ordered statistical data, including order statistics and their generalizations, censoring schemes, stochastic orders, and their applications in reliability, statistics and lifetime analysis. The scientific program will include plenary lectures, Jarosław Bartoszewicz memorial session and contributed talks. Five plenary speakers have confirmed their attendance: Jafar Ahmadi (Ferdowsi University, Iran); Narayanaswamy Balakrishnan (McMaster University, Canada); Udo Kamps (RWTH Aachen University, Germany); Jorge Navarro (University of Murcia, Spain); Moshe Shaked (University of Arizona, USA). On Tuesday morning, June 3rd, a special session on stochastic orders, dedicated to the memory of Professor Jarosław Bartoszewicz will be organized. Professor Bartoszewicz, a leading expert in the stochastic order theory, was a member of the Scientific Committee of our conference. He passed away in Ferbuary 2013. This memorial session will consist of the plenary lecture of Professor Moshe Shaked followed by a series of invited talks.

The conference venue is the Mathematical Research and Conference Center of the Institute of Mathematics of Polish Academy of Sciences in Będlewo. This is located 26 km southwest from the center of Poznań (2 km from the Poznań - Wrocław route). The Center is situated in a charming spot on the border of the Wielkopolski National Park, among great woods and beautiful lakes. The complex spans 9 hectars, including a strictly preserved forest area. The Center itself is located in two buldings: a neogothic palace built in 1866, and a modern and fully equipped hotel. The participants and accompanying persons will be accommodated in the hotel of the Będlewo Center. The Będlewo Center website is


We are happy to inform you that we managed to get a significant financial support from the Warsaw Center of Mathematics and Computer Science, Stefan Banach International Mathematical Center, and Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. Therefore we are able to propose you very low participant costs. The registration fee for the week conference, including the hotel accomodation with all meals in the Będlewo Center, refreshments during the conference, all social events and transportation from Poznań airport or railway station to Będlewo and back, is less than 200 Euro.

We cordially invite you to come to Będlewo for OSD 2014, present your achievements, exchange your research ideas, start and develop collaboration with other researchers from all over the world, and contribute to the further development of the field of ordered statistical data. Please inform your colleagues about our conference. Also, we would be grateful if you deliver the e-mail addresses of other people who could be interested in the subject of our meeting. Then we send this our announcement to them as well. At the beginning of June, there is the nicest time for visiting Poland. The weather is very nice then: days are long and sunny, rains are seldom and warm, and the day temperatures vary between 15° and 25° C.
