Summer 2019, with S. Bhamidi, G. Brito, R. Durrett, and M. Junge, we are hosting an AMS Math Research Communities on spatial stochastic models. This is for early-career scientists (2 years before to 5 years after Ph. D.) and will focus on working on working groups and collaborations. See the link here and the link to apply on mathprograms.org.
