About the Probability Section


The Probability Section was created at the 2005 October SSC Board meeting with the support of approximately 20 founding members; membership is now around 100. 


The overall objective of the section is to focus on the interests of members working in probability and its applications to mathematics, biology, finance and many other areas. The section will therefore organize invited and contributed paper sessions at the SSC Annual Meetings as well as appropriate short courses and workshops. The section also aims to promote the greater interaction of researchers in probability theory from the SSC, the CMS, Bernoulli Society and IMS.
