2003 John H. Barrett Memorial Lectures

Primary tabs

Faculty and Students, Each year, the ISyE/Math Center for Applied Probability at Georgia Tech hosts a two-day Southeast Probability Days Conference. This year, our neighbors from the University of Tennessee have invited us to combine our conference with their probability conference under the title of Barrett Memorial Lectures. See the details below. We encourage you to attend. ---------------------------------- Dear Colleague: We are organizing the "John H. Barrett Memorial Lectures" that will be held at the University of Tennessee in April 25 - 26, 2003. The tradition of these Lectures began in 1970 to honor our distinguished scientist John H. Barrett. The Lectures have been given annually since 1972 by a succession of distinguished speakers in various areas of research interest of our mathematics faculty. This year probability has been chosen as the area for the Lectures Series. "Random walks, Levy processes, and related topics" will be the general theme. Jean Bertoin (Paris VI) and Greg Lawler (Cornell Univ.) are the principal speakers of the Series; each will deliver three one-hour talks. We have also planned to have five additional half-hour lectures in the realm of the theme mentioned above. The details of the academic program and other related activities are included in conference website: http://www.math.utk.edu/Barrett/ We invite you to participate in the Lecture Series. We have applied for some funds to partially support those participants who do not have other means of support. Should the funds become available, preference will be given to young researchers and graduate students. Should you accept this invitation, please fill the electronic registration form included in the conference website by March 24, 2003. If you know any graduate students who you think may benefit by participating in this meeting, please encourage them to apply. We have reserved a block of rooms for the participants in Days Inn and Hilton Hotel which will be held until April 1. As you may know, April is a beautiful time to visit Knoxville and the near by Great Smoky Mountains. Many activities are taking place here at this time. We therefore urge you please make your own reservations as soon as possible. Hotel's addresses and telephone numbers are provided on the conference website. Further inquires regarding the scientific program can be obtained from the organizers listed below and, regarding the support and accommodation, from Ms. Alice Gregory gregory@math.utk.edu Sincerely, Jan Rosinski (for the Organizing Committee)
