Many thanks to all the speakers and participants of the Duke conference on Probability Theory and Combinatorial Optimization. Your presence helped us have a great meeting! Thank you so much for attending! 


We are extremely excited to announce a conference on Probability Theory and Combinatorial Optimization that will take place at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business on Saturday March 14 and Sunday March 15, 2015.

The conference will provide an opportunity to honor J. Michael Steele’s contributions to probability theory and combinatorial optimization in occasion of his 65th birthday.
