2020 PIMS-CRM Summer School in Probability

  • Start Date: 06/01/2020
  • End Date: 06/26/2020

University of British Columbia


This is the Registration page for the 2020 PIMS- CRM Probability Summer School  


There will be two 4-week courses:

  • Ivan Corwin: Interacting particle systems, growth models, stochastic PDEs and directed polymers through the lens of the stochastic six vertex model. (THIS IS DISTINCT FROM HIS ST. FLOUR LECTURES).
  • Frank den Hollander: Metastability for interacting particle systems


There will also be 3 short (3-lecture) courses:

  • Paul Bourgade: Branching processes in random matrix theory and number theory.
  • Jean-Francois Le Gall: Brownian geometry on the sphere.
  • Nike Sun: Statistical physics of random constraint satisfaction problems.


Funding for local expenses will be provided for some participants who are able to attend the entire summer school. This will largely consist of free on-campus housing. Application for financial support will be accepted at the webpage below starting Sept. 9/19 and ending December 31, 2019. Registration, including payment of the $100 registration fee will also be available online at the same webpage starting Sept. 9/19.


The school is intended primarily for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in Probability. There will also be opportunities for interested participants to present their own research.


Questions can be directed to the following local organizers:
