Workshop on Stochastics in the North West

Date and Location

The talks will take place in the Frank Adams Seminar Room 1, on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 April, 2009


The purpose of this meeting is to establish closer ties between probabilists in the North-West region, and to introduce our respective research interests. We hope this meeting will develop into an annual event, with the details discussed at the workshop.


The conference is organised by Markus Riedle and John Moriarty.
The conference administrator is Sebastian Rees.
