Conference on Extreme Value Theory and Laws of Rare Events: 14th-18th July 2014

The conference is about extreme value laws from a theoretical and applied perspective, bringing together experts from statistics, dynamics, physics and meteorology. The meeting will consist of several hour-long talks, along with a few shorter talks, so as to leave time for discussion and collaboration. The conference will take place at CIRM, outside Luminy, near Marseille.
