This PIMS summer school is intended for graduate students, post-docs,
and young researchers in applied math and atmosphere/ocean sciences who
are interested in the application of stochastic and probabilistic
modelling and analysis techniques for atmosphere/ocean dynamics.
Financial aid and accommodation will be provided for eligible students
and post-docs. The deadline for application is May 15, 2008.

Financial Aid (for students and post-docs)

Students and post-docs who are attending the summer school are invited
to apply for financial aid to cover their accommodation cost in the
UVic Student Residences (Bed and Breakfast), a food allowance of up
$100, and a travel allowance to be determined according to the distance
traveled. Please specify the city you are traveling from and if
possible an estimate of the expected air fare. We may cover only some
percentage of your air fare.
To apply, please fill in the application form (which will soon be
available on the registration page) and provide your resume with the
list of publications if any, and name and affiliation of your
supervisor. Also provide a description of your research area (a few key
