Welcome to the second
ATHENS Pr OBABILITY
We wish to
thank all the participants for making the meeting so successful, and the
speakers for their wonderful presentations. Some pictures from the three talks
can be found here.
Following last year’s success, we decided to continue with this
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
All talks will take
place in room AMΦ24, on the 2nd
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
chat and say goodbye.
