Description: 

Due to the impossibility of running the 2020 PIMS-CRM summer school in probability and the Seminaire de Mathematiques Superieures scheduled for this summer as originally planned, the organizers of those events have united to run a series of mini-courses on diverse topics in probability. All courses will take place online. Most courses will consist of three 1-hour lectures, and will be open to all interested participants. Some courses will be accompanied by short research presentations on related topics.

 

 

Summer School Delivery

Zoom is the primary platform for OOPS. All lectures will take place in zoom meetings. Many lectures will be followed by optional discussion sessions in breakout rooms, which also allow participants to get to know each other. A link to each lecture will be posted on the schedule. Zoom meetings will be password protected; The password will be sent to the mailing list and posted on our forum before each talk. Note that you do not have to install the zoom client to take part in zoom meetings: If you are concerned about the zoom client's security vulnerabilities, cannot, or do not wish to install the client, you can also join the meetings through a web browser.
