Welcome to the second


Saturday May 31, 2014

Math Dept, University of Athens



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 participants.

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.

             Perla Sousi

Mobile geometric graphs: Detection, isolation and percolation



After the last talk, there will be another coffee break to wrap up, get yet another chance to chat and say goodbye.


[Arrangements for coffee and lunch will be made locally by the organizers.]

Timo Seppäläinen is a professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and he is currently the editor of the Annals of Applied Probability. His research interests include interacting particle systems, large deviations, and random walks in random environments.


Perla Sousi is a Junior Research Fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge University. Her research interests include random walks, Brownian motion, mixing times of Markov chains, Poisson Brownian motions, and rearrangement inequalities.


Kostas Kardaras is a professor with the London School of Economics. His research interests focus on stochastic analysis and, in particular, its applications in Financial Mathematics.
