St Petersburg School in Probability and Statistical Physics

Sunday, June 17, 2012 - 8:00pm to Friday, June 29, 2012 - 7:59pm

The School is devoted to recent advances in probability and statistical physics
as well as to classical topics with current increase of activity. It targets
graduate students and postdocs, but undergraduate students and advanced
researchers are also welcome to attend. We plan four longer courses: Gerard Ben
Arous, Alexei Borodin, Yuval Peres, Ofer Zeitouni; as well as mini-courses and
talks by Yuri Bakhtin, Sourav Chatterjee, Alice Guionnet, Greg Lawler, Andrei
Okounkov (tbc), Mikhail Sodin and others. We will be able to cover
accommodation and possibly travel costs for a number of participants, with
priority given to graduate students and recent PhDs. If you are interested in
participating, please submit your application with a short CV to and provide for a letter of recommendation to be sent
to the same address. The applications must be submitted by March 1, 2012 (and
by February 12, if you request financial support).
