success of the first and second APrOC meetings, 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.
interested faculty, post-docs and students are welcome and are encouraged to
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

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

provided at the University Cafeteria, at a cost of 3 euro per person.
Amir Dembo is a professor with the Departments of Statistics and Mathematics at
Stanford University, and is currently serving as the Editor of Probability Theory and Related Fields.
He has very broad interests in probability and its applications, and is a co-author of the influential text Large Deviations Techniques and Applications.
Alexandros Beskos is Senior Lecturer in Statistics at University College London. His
research interests include methodology, analysis and applications of Markov
chain Monte Carlo and Sequential Monte Carlo methods.
Agelos Georgakopoulos received his PhD in mathematics (infinite topological
graph theory) from the University of Hamburg in 2007. After postdoc positions
at Hamburg and Graz, and shorter collaborations with Ottawa, Geveva and the Weizmann Institute, he has been an assistant
professor at the University of Warwick since 2012.
There is NO
registration fee and everyone interested is welcome to participate. But we ask,
