ANNOUNCEMENT          SCHEDULE          SPEAKERS          *RSVP*



Welcome to the sixth


Saturday March 17, 2018

Math Dept, University of Athens


Thank you!
Once again, we had a wonderful colloquium! We wish to thank all the participants for making the meeting so successful, and the speakers for their great presentations. Some pictures from the three talks can be found below.



Following the success of the first five AProC meetings [1,2,3,4,5], 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. A map 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.


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.
