  • Denis Villemonais (Nancy): Non-failable approximation method for conditioned distributions
  • Fritz Colonius (Augsburg): Invariance entropy in control theory and quasi-stationarity
  • Nicolas Champagnat (Nancy): Uniform exponential convergence to quasi-stationary distributions for general absorbed Markov processes
