We regret to announce that, due to current global circumstances, the 2020 PIMS-CRM summer school will not be taking place as planned. We are happy to announce the 2020 Online Open Probability School.

We are planning to instead run the summer school with the same speakers, in Vancouver in 2022. Further details for the 2022 school will be announced in due time. The 2021 edition of the school is scheduled to run from 2021 May 24 to June 18, in Montreal; Details can be found here.


The next PIMS-CRM probability summer school will not take place in 2020, June 1-26, at the University of British Columbia. There will not be two main courses, given by Frank den Hollander and Ivan Corwin, nor will there be mini-courses by Jean-François Le Gall, Paul Bourgade, and Nike Sun.
