Re-scheduled: Hugh C Morris Lecture - George Papanicolaou

PIMS is pleased to announce that a new date has been set for the inaugural lecture for the Hugh C. Morris Lecture Series, with speaker George Papanicolaou from Stanford University. This lecture “Uncertainty quantification and systemic risk” will be held on Monday, November 7, 2011 at the University of British Columbia.

Dr. Hugh Morris, former Chair of the PIMS Board of Directors and a longtime friend of the mathematical sciences, has generously endowed a yearly lecture series at PIMS. To recognize his generous gift, it will be called the Hugh C. Morris Lecture Series. The objective will be to attract the top mathematical scientists in the world to deliver presentations on current research topics to PIMS sites in Western Canada and Washington State.
The first speaker for this series is George Papanicolaou from Stanford University. Prof. Papanicolaou is a highly regarded applied mathematician, a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, winner of the SIAM von Neumann Prize (2006) and the William Benter Prize in Applied Mathematics (2010).
