Seminars & Workshops


There is a variety of seminars held each week during the academic year. These events offer faculty members and visitors to the department the opportunity to present their current research work to an appreciative and skeptical audience. These events are also open to the general public; plan ahead and arrive early in order to secure campus parking.

Students are strongly encouraged to attend Seminars regularly to become acquainted with the broad range of research topics in probability and statistics, and to taste the excellent cookies which are served before the presentations. Ph.D. candidates are expected to present the results of their thesis research in a Statistics Department Seminar. Additional events of interest are presented by the Department of Mathematics as well as the Data, Society, and Inference Seminar, the ISL Colloquium, and the Information Theory Forum.
