STAR Workshop on Random Graphs 2018

We hope to welcome you to Nijmegen for a two-day workshop focused on random graphs and related topics, which takes place (in the pendulated Huygensgebouw, room HG00.303) on the campus of Radboud University Nijmegen on the 12th and 13th of April 2018.

The event is free and open to all, but participants should register by email to rosskanggmailcom.

Radboud University Nijmegen


Our event will feature some of the foremost researchers in the field, including Leslie Ann Goldberg, Frank den Hollander, Colin McDiarmid, Patrice Ossona de Mendez, and Bruce Reed. Further details to follow.


The event is free and open to all, but participants should register by email to rosskanggmailcom, including name and affiliation (as it might appear on a badge), dietary or other requirements, and expected day/time of arrival/departure.

There is opportunity for early-career researchers to present their work at the meeting. Those interested are encouraged to send details of their proposed talk along with their registration email. Note that talks are selected on the basis of some possibly convex combination of the following parameters: relevance of talk topic, international affiliation, journey time, academic age, date of registration.

A small amount funding is available to support the travel of international participants, especially those who contribute a talk, so interested applicants should also indicate their estimated travel costs. Applicants before 13 March will receive full consideration.

The list of participants registered thus far includes Carla Groenland (Oxford), Daniel Ritter (Munich), Gilles Bonnet (Ruhr University Bochum), William Weimin Yoo (Leiden), Markus Schepers (Groningen), Henk Don (Nijmegen), Ben Hansen (Groningen), Nicolas Grelier (IMT Atlantique), Davis Issac (MPI Saarbrücken), Aida Abiad (Maastricht), Eric Cator (Nijmegen), Leslie Ann Goldberg (Oxford), Frank den Hollander (Leiden), Colin McDiarmid (Oxford), Patrice Ossona de Mendez (CNRS), Bruce Reed (CNRS/IMPA), Ross Kang (Nijmegen), Tobias Müller (Groningen).

Local information

The city of Nijmegen is a medium-sized municipality in the Netherlands, situated on the Waal river close to the Eastern border with Germany. It is friendly and liberal, with historical roots extending back two millennia.

Nijmegen is easily accessible by rail and in particular has a regular 90-minute connection to Amsterdam Schiphol airport. Other airports nearby are Eindhoven (100-minute connection, bus and train) and Weeze (45-minute connection, infrequent bus). For travel information within the Netherlands, is useful.

The campus of Radboud University is about 3 kilometres south of the city centre. To get to the workshop location by bus (stop "Huygensgebouw"), use 13, 15, 300 from the east side of the centre, or take the shuttle bus service 10 from nearer the Nijmegen train station. It is a 10 minute bicycle ride if, say, your accommodation provides free (or cheap) wheels. It could also be convenient to take a one-stop journey on a local train service (station "Nijmegen Heyendaal").

The campus has eduroam. Don't forget to set it up before leaving your home institution.

To give a Dutch spin on a tradition from the RS&A conference series, we hope to have a "random ride" on Thursday weather permitting, which may include part of the nearby "Zeven Heuvelen".

Sponsors and organisation

The meeting is made possible through the support of the Netherlands mathematics cluster "Stochastics – Theoretical and Applied Research" (STAR). It follows similar events in 2012, 2015, and 2017.

The organisers are Ross Kang and Tobias Müller.
