Programme Committee: Prof Estate Khmaladze and Prof David Vere-Jones.

Organising Committee: Estate Khmaladze, Richard Arnold, Stefanka Chukova, John Haywood and Yuichi Hirose.

Relatively short, clear and focused presentations in probability theory and mathematical statistics are welcome. Presentations in applied problems are also welcome, provided they are based on interesting and novel mathematical models.

All presentations will be by invitation, following submissions from interested participants. All will have 35 minutes for a talk + 5 min for questions.

The style of the Workshop, and its organisation, will be completely non-bureaucratic and straightforward. Instead, we will do all we can to ensure the high quality of presented material, plus clarity and simplicity of the presentations.

The workshop will be held on the Kelburn campus of Victoria University of Wellington (Room: Murphy Building, MY 632).
