Probability Seminar

The Probability Seminars are held in Room 200 of Sequoia Hall at 4pm on Mondays. Refreshments are served at 3:30pm in the Lounge on the first floor.

We provide a LaTeX template for speakers to use when submitting the abstract for a seminar (sample PDF output). Using this template makes it possible to post the abstract promptly and without unintended errors that might creep in if your text has to be migrated from another source.

Questions about Seminars may be sent to seminars@stat.stanford.edu.
