48th Probability Summer School
Saint-Flour (France), 08 - 20 July 2018

Version Française

Founded in 1971, this school is organised every year by the Laboratoire de Mathématiques (UMR 6620). It is supported by Clermont Auvergne University and the C.N.R.S.. 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.
