Statistical and Dynamical Combinatorics

A Mathematical Conference, and celebration of Jim Propp's 2(4 choose 2)-th Birthday


The conference on Statistical and Dynamical Combinatorics will take place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, on June 26–29 2024 (Wednesday-Saturday). The conference will feature talks on sandpiles, dimers, dynamical combinatorics and a range of other topics that combine combinatorics, statistics and probability.

This will also serve as a celebration of Jim Propp's 2(4 choose 2)-th Birthday.
