Workshops and Conferences DMS-0306194 (04-08) and DMS-0739164 (2008-2015)
Each year, the Cornell Probability Training Group organized or supported two workshops or conferences.
Most of the workshops were
held from Saturday to Tuesday morning. Each involved 8 to 10 lectures and
a number of invited participants including advanced graduate students and
postdoctoral associates.
