Welcome to the fourth


Saturday May 28, 2016

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 the success of the first, second and third 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.


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.

Konstantinos Panagiotou (Ludwig-Maximilians U)

Phase transitions in random constraint satisfaction problems





       Nikolaos Zygouras

(University of Warwick)

 Disordered Systems: A crossroad of stochastic, combinatorial structures and beyond



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 refreshments will be made locally by the organizers. Lunch will be provided at the University Cafeteria, at a cost of 3.20 euro per person.

Itai Benjamini holds the Renee and Jay Weiss Chair in the Department of Mathematics at the Weizmann Institute. He has received Rollo Davidson Prize for young probability theorists, the Morris L. Levinson Prize of the Weizmann Institute, and he was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2010.


Konstantinos Panagiotou is a Professor at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Munich. His research interests are in random discrete structures, analytic and enumerative combinatorics and randomized algorithms.


Nikolaos Zygouras is a Reader with the Department of Statistics at Warwick University, where he is also co-director of the Mathematics and Statistics Doctoral Center. His research interests are in probability, statistical physics, their relation to PDEs, representation theory and combinatorics.
