Probability theory has been among the most active branches in mathematics, notably thanks to its interactions with many other fields and disciplines. The aim of the symposium is to bring in world-leading probabilists with an in-depth program of their latest research work.

Symposium consists of two mini-courses and several invited talks, completed by contributed talks.

Mini courses (each course: four 90-min lectures):

Professor Martin Hairer (University of Warwick) :
Stochastic partial differential equations.

Professor Jean-Francois Le Gall (Université Paris Orsay):
Random planar maps.

Professor Hairer is a laureat of the recent Fields medal (2014).

Professor Le Gall is one of the leading French probabilists (member of French academy of sciences, laureat of Loève Prize, Fermat Prize and many others awards), as well as a world renowned lecturer.

Invited Speakers:

Julien Berestycki (University of Oxford)
Nicolas Curien (Université Paris Orsay)
Bernard Derrida (Collegè de France & ENS)
Vladas Sidoravicius (Courant Institute & NYU-Shanghai)

Organisation and support:

Invited speakers are selected by Chair Lamé Professor. Contributed talks are selected by the Organizing Committee.
Young mathematicians (undergraduate, graduate students and post-docs) participation is supported (hosting - for all, travel expenses - for participants from Russia and CIS).
Lunches, welcome party and coffee breaks are free for all participants.

The number of participants is limited.
Registration of any person willing to participate is mandatory.
The registration deadline is 20 March.
