Faculty Award Mathias Drton will give an IMS Medallion lecture at this summer's JSM in Boston.  
New Courses in Sp14 STAT 593: Jon Wellner is teaching a special topics course in the Spring entitled, "Concentration Inequalities and Empirical Process Methods for High-Dimensional Statistics." The prerequisites are Stat 581-2-3 or Stat 521-2-3 (or concurrent registration in 583 or 523) or comparable, and an interest in high-dimensional statistics.
  STAT 593B: Werner Stuetzle will be teaching "Cluster Analysis and Other Unsupervised Learning Methods" this spring. Prerequisites: Statistics at least at the level of Stat/Math 390, familiarity with Linear Algebra, some programming experience, and some previous exposure to pattern recognition.
  BIOSTAT/EPI 555: Jon Wakefield will be teaching "Statistical Methods for Spatial Epidemiology." The prerequisites are previous exposure to regression modeling; the course will be a mixture of methodology and applied analyses.
  STAT/BIOSTAT 578: Galen Shorack will be teaching "Measure Theory for Statisticians." The course will focus on developing the basic results for the Lebesgue integral. Mathematical maturity (such as completing MATH 574) is encouraged.
