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.
Timo Seppalainen - KPZ universality and directed polymers in random environments
Karl-Theodor Sturm - Optimal transport in geometry, analysis and probability
Balint Virag - Operator limits of random matrices
John Mattingly - Title TBC
