Early Career Peer Group
The group meets about once a month for online seminars during the academic year. The online meetings feature research seminars and discussions of soft topics relevant to early career researchers intending to continue in academics.
In May 2016, we organized the first meeting in our new series Conference on New Developments in Probability. The inaugural meeting was co-organized with the Deparmtent of Mathematics at Northwestern University, in coordination with their Emphasis Year in Probability. CNDP will run about every three years with the next meeting tentatively scheduled for Spring 2019. See the tab above for forthcoming details.
