Abstract : The 32nd conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications (SPA'07) was held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign during the week of August 6-10. The SPA meetings are yearly international events held under the auspices of Committee for Conferences on Stochastic Processes of the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability and are co-sponsored by the Institute for Mathematical Statistics (IMS). The conference was organized by Robert Bauer, Tom Kurtz, Sean Meyn, Renming Song, and Richard Sowers. There were 15 invited speakers, about 20 special sessions, and 150 contributed talks. The invited speakers spoke on a range of topics such as abstract stochastic processes, population models, stochastic partial differential equations, and stochastic networks. The sessions (special and contributed) were also dedicated to a variety of subjects; e.g., stochastic Loewner equations, Levy and stable processes, abstract stochastic equations, probability and the Navier-Stokes equation, random media, finance and simulation.
