Probabilistic Midwinter Meeting January 13-14 2021

On January 13th and 14th we will hold the fourth midwinter meeting in discrete probability. Here we want to provide an opportunity for the researchers at the many different Swedish universities to meet, discuss, and get up to date on ongoing research.

Due to the current situation with the  Covid19 pandemic we have decided to postpone this workshop. We will update the this web page during the spring semester  with a new date for the workshop.


This web page will be updated with a list of participants, talks, and schedule for the two days.


Partial list of participants

A list of participants will be posted when a new date for the workshop has been decided.


Accomodation in Umeå

The hotel closest to the university is Hotell Björken, The University Hospital Hotel, but it is often booked-up by patients staying at the hospital and their relatives. There are however plenty of nice hotels available in the centre of Umeå, which is just a 20 minutes walk or a 5 minutes bus-ride away from the university.

For some of the more stylish options there are Stora Hotellet, Elite Hotel Mimer and Scandic Plaza Hotel. Mid-range options include U&Me hotell, which is a staff-less hotel (make sure you ask for a room high up, and facing the river!) and the family-run Hotel Uman. Finally for some more modest options you can try Hotell Pilen and Hotell gamla fängelset (the latter is the reconverted old city gaol, where you can spend the night safely behind bars), both of which are located between the town centre and the university.
