Probability and Analysis


"Variational Aspects of Particle Systems and Differential Equations"








The Stochastic Activity Month (SAM) "Probability and Analysis", will take place at Eurandom during March 2016.

The main theme of SAM 2016 is "Variational structures and large deviations for interacting particle systems and partial differential equations".
The following four subthemes will be addressed:

1) Large deviations: gradient flows, polymers and disordered systems.
2) Stochastic homogenisation.
3) Partial differential equations in random environment.
4) Efficient simulation of rare events.

Den Dolech 2, 5612 AZ  EINDHOVEN,  The Netherlands

Eurandom is located on the campus of Eindhoven University of Technology, in the Metaforum building (4th floor) (about the building). The university is located at 10 minutes walking distance from Eindhoven main railway station (take the exit north side and walk towards the tall building on the right with the sign TU/e).
Accessibility TU/e campus and map.







For invited participants, we will take care of accommodation. Other attendees will have to make their own arrangements.

We have a preferred hotel, which can be booked at special rates. Please email Patty Koorn for instructions on how to make use of this special offer.

The meeting-room is equipped with a data projector, an overhead projector, a projection screen and a blackboard. Please note that speakers and participants making an oral presentation are kindly requested to bring their own laptop or their presentation on a memory stick.


      Conference Secretariat

Upon arrival, participants should register with the workshop officer, and collect their name badges. The workshop officer will be present for the duration of the conference, taking care of the administrative aspects and the day-to-day running of the conference: registration, issuing certificates and receipts, etc.



Should you need to cancel your participation, please contact Patty Koorn, the Workshop Officer.

There is no registration fee, but should you need to cancel your participation after March 2, 2016, we will be obliged to charge a no-show fee of 30 euro.
