The Symposium on Probability and Stochastic Processes was held for the first time in 1988 at CIMAT. During all these years, the symposium has fulfilled its main objective of exchanging ideas and discussing state-of-the-art developments in this field, bringing together national and international researchers as well as graduate students. It has undoubtedly propelled research in Probability Theory in Mexico. These exchanges have been fruitful in the long term, in collaborative articles among the participants, graduate studies of Mexican students with national and international researchers, lecture notes for the courses, as well as volumes of contributed papers. Today, after thirteen editions, it is recognized as the main national event in the area.

The Symposium of Probability and Stochastic Processes takes place typically every two years in various academic institutions in Mexico, although the one expected in 2019 has been delayed due to the involvement of the Mexican community of researchers in this area in the organization of the 15th Latin American Congress of Probability and Mathematical Statistics (CLAPEM), Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, 2019. Then, the world was hit by the COVID-19 pandemia, affecting the realization of in person academic events, which are so important for the developpement of collaborations in the field.

Thus, the fourthteen realization of the Symposium will be the first occasion after the pandemia for the mexican community to gather with the aim described. This will take place at the Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas A.C., CIMAT, in Guanajuato, from November 20 to 24, 2023.

The organization has been jointly coordinated by CIMAT, CINVESTAV,  Ciencias UNAM, IIMAS UNAM, UAM, UniSon. We thank these institutions, the Posgrado UNAM, IMATE UNAM, and in general all the generous institutions and research projects through which the realization of this event is being funded.

As in its previous editions, the program will be composed of courses given by leaders in the area, plenary talks on various topics at the forefront of  probability, thematic sessions in strategic areas of development for probability in Mexico and a poster session.

All those interested are cordially invited to attend the courses and lectures of the symposium. Students are particularly invited to participate in the different activities of the symposium.
