Céad míle fáilte Welcome to YSI 2011 and welcome to Dublin, Ireland! Many thanks to our invited speakers who have kindly given their time to spend with us this weekend. Many thanks also to all of you for attending what we hope will be an interactive, enjoyable and learning experience for all of us. Sincere thanks must go to our sponsors – without their vision and financial support this event would not have taken place. Many thanks to the Irish Statistical Association, Google, Accenture, Science Foundation Ireland, Irish Aid, the American Statistical Association, the Royal Statistical Society, the Bernoulli Society and the International Environmetrics Society. Alison Murphy in MCI has been patient, helpful and professional and to her we owe many thanks. Thanks must also go to Trinity College Dublin and their conference organising team for all their assistance. Finally, to all the postgraduate students and colleagues in University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin for all the (stressful!) behind the scenes help – it did not go unnoticed and we are very grateful for all your help. The YSI 2011 Organising Committee August 2011
