The Banff International Research Station will host the "Retreat for Young Researchers in Stochastics" workshop in Banff from October 20, 2017 to October 22, 2017.

Probability is a powerful technique which plays a central role in modelling in finance, genetics, and physics. This small meeting will gather together some of the most promising young researchers in probability in W. Canada and Washington State, together with leading Faculty from Simon Fraser, U. Washington, U. B. C., U. Alberta and U. Calgary. The topics range from theoretical advances in stochastic PDE to recent applications in mathematical finance.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
