The 1st Victorian Research Students’ Meeting in Probability and Statistics will take place on Monday 5th June 2017. It is open to PhD students or equivalent in any field related to probability or statistics.

This meeting is planned to become an annual event that is organized by students, for students. It is supposed to have a friendly atmosphere in which inter-institution connections can be made and ideas can be discussed freely. It is an ideal environment to present research for the first time. All attendees are encouraged to take the opportunity to submit a talk or poster, although this is not mandatory. The deadline for submitting the talk title and an abstract is 25th of May. The first meeting is kindly hosted by La Trobe University.

We look forward to seeing you!
