# Announcement

Following the
success of the first four A*Pr*oC meetings [**1**,**2**,**3**,**4**], we are again organizing this year’s
one-day event, centered around three top-quality talks in probability and its
interface with other active areas of current research activity. The main aim is
to bring together all near-Athens-based researchers in probability and related
areas of mathematics and applications.

*All
interested faculty, post-docs and students are welcome and are encouraged to
attend*

The talks are
intended for a general (math/stat) audience and will be accessible to students
without particular expertise in the specific areas of the topics discussed.
Also, there will be ample time for free interaction and discussion between the
participants.

A related event of
possible interest is the summer school on **Techniques in Random Discrete Structures**,
which will also take place at the University of Athens the following week.

place in **room AM****Φ****24**, on the 2^{nd}
floor of the Mathematics Dept building on the University
of Athens campus [map]. A collection
of campus maps together with information on how to get there can be found here.

After the last
talk, there will be another coffee break to wrap up, get yet another chance to

Arrangements for coffee
and refreshments will be made locally by the organizers. Lunch will be provided
at the University Cafeteria, at a cost of 3.00 euro per person.
