Seminars & Workshops


There is a variety of seminars held each week during the academic year. These events offer faculty members and visitors to the department the opportunity to present their current research work to an appreciative and skeptical audience. Joint colloquia are held generally twice per year, in the Autumn and Spring Quarters, with the Berkeley Statistics Department.

Students are strongly encouraged to attend Seminars regularly to become acquainted with the broad range of research topics in probability and statistics, and to taste the excellent cookies which are served before the presentations. Ph.D. candidates are expected to present the results of their thesis research in a Statistics Department Seminar. Additional events of interest are presented by the Department of Mathematics and ICME.

Interested persons are invited to subscribe to our mailing lists at any time! Please follow the links for Statistics Seminars and/or Probability Seminars, and fill in the fields required to subscribe, unsubscribe, change subscription options, and so on.
