3rd Annual Graduate Student Conference in Probability

May 1 - 3, 2009

University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

What is the goal of this conference?

This conference provides students and post-docs with the opportunity to speak on an area of interest within probability. Additionally, there will be three keynote speakers to introduce recent developments in probability, ultimately encouraging participants' interest in the field. With an audience composed primarily of students, the friendly and informal atmosphere fosters constructive discussions, which promotes innovative research.

Who can participate?

This conference is organized by graduate students from UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University for graduate students or post-doctoral fellows.

Will there be funding?

Yes, but most likely not enough to support everybody. Please ask your own department for financial support first. We plan to support travel expenses (up to $300) for as many students as possible.

Will there be lodging?

While lodging will not be financially supported, there may be a possibility of staying with students from UNC or Duke, depending on the number of participants. When you fill out the registration form, indicate whether you want to apply for funding. Again, there is no guarantee for funding, but we will try our best to support you. Note that priority will be given to those who give a talk.
