49th Probability Summer School
Saint-Flour (France), 07 - 19 July 2019
Founded in 1971, this school is organised every year by the Laboratoire de Mathématiques Blaise Pascal (UMR 6620). It is supported by Clermont Auvergne University, C.N.R.S. and the European Mathematical Society. It is intended for PhD students, teachers and researchers who are interested in probability theory, statistics, and in applications of these techniques.
The school has three main goals:
- to provide, in three high level courses, a comprehensive study of a field in probability theory or statistics;
- to enable the participants to explain their work in lectures;
- to facilitate exchanges between the participants.
The lecturers are chosen by the Scientific Board of the school.
Nicolas Curien (Université Paris-Sud Orsay) : Random discrete surfaces.
Elchanan Mossel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) : Probabilistic aspects of voting, intransitivity and manipulation.
Philippe Rigollet (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) : Statistical optimal transport.
Participants will be lodged from sunday, july 07, at the conference center. Full board accommodation of the participants is included in the registration fee; the families can also be lodged, and their accommodation should be paid for during the school.
This school is a CNRS school and consequently CNRS agents do not have to pay the registration fee.
Online registration will open in february 2019.
