EPSRC Symposium Workshop - 2012 UK Easter Probability Meeting

Monday 26 – Friday 30 March 2012

Organisers: S. Assing (Warwick), D. Elworthy (Warwick), C. Goldschmidt (Warwick), B. Hambly (Oxford), M. Hairer (Warwick), W. Kendall (Warwick), R. Kotecky ́(Warwick), X.-M. Li (Warwick), N. O’Connell (Warwick), R. Tribe (Warwick), J. Warren (Warwick)

The UK Easter Probability Meeting is a long-standing tradition that was recently revived at the University of Warwick in 2008. The following meeting was held at Bath in 2009 and next meeting was held at Oxford in April, 2011. The general aim of these meetings is to bring together the UK probability community, showcase recent developments, and invite leading international researchers to give short courses on topical and emerging areas in the field. Following the successful format of the previous instances of the UK Easter Meeting, it will revolve around three mini-courses of about five hours each.

Accommodation will be arranged on Campus by the Mathematics Research Centre (MRC).

Some practical details

Here is advice on how to get to Warwick University from the main UK airports.

The nearest railway station to the University is Coventry Railway Station, approximately 2.5 miles away.

Here is a map of the Warwick campus (where the Mathematics Department is in the Zeeman Building, numbered 37).

Here is some information on local buses (U1 and U2 connect Coventry-University-Leamington Spa; 12 connects Coventry-University-Kenilworth-Leamington Spa). Kenilworth is 4 miles from the University. Leamington Spa is 8 miles from the University, and has its own railway station.

The cost of parking on Campus is £3 per day.

Lectures will be in room MS.01 in the Zeeman Building (which is suitable for blackboard, OHP or computer presentations).
