This conference takes place on the occasion of Evarist Giné’s 70th birthday. It will attempt to reflect recent developments in the many areas that Evarist has transformed and worked on in his distinguished career: from probability in Banach spaces, empirical, chaos- and U- process theory to mathematical and nonparametric statistics.

We gratefully acknowledge funding support from the US National Science Foundation.
