Week 2 to 5 - Extended Program

 

August 5th to August 30th, 2024

 

The extended program gives researchers in discrete Probability, Statistics and related areas the opportunity to visit IMPA for a full month, while taking part in a loosely structured and related set of activities. The weekly schedule will consist of

 

  • talks by participating researchers (to be scheduled once their dates are confirmed);
  • the second part of the minicourse in discrete Probability from week 1;
  • minicourses in Statistics aimed at PhD students with a strong mathematical background;
  • collaborative work and open problem sessions.

 

The extended program is open to all. A small amount of financial aid will be available, with priority given to young researchers and students from South American institutions.

Participants from RandNET institutions in Europe and Chile may be funded through secondments from this grant; contact the team leader at your institution for more details.
