The 7th Conference on Extreme Value Analysis, Probabilistic and Statistical Models and their Applications, will take place at the University of Lyon (France) from June 27th to July 1st, 2011.

Previous EVA conferences have been held in Leuven, Belgium (2001), Aveiro, Portugal (2004), twice in Gothenburg, Sweden (1998 and 2005), Bern, Switzerland (2007), and most recently in Fort Collins, USA (2009). As with the previous meetings, the 2011 meeting will schedule presentations on all aspects of risk and extreme value theory and their applications. The emphasis will be on probabilistic modeling, statistical analyses, and applications in
- Climate and Atmospheric Science  
- Industrial Risks  
- Geosciences  
- Hydrology  
- Finance, Economics and Insurance  
- Biosciences  
- Physics  
- Telecommunications and Stochastic Networks  

It is the aim of the conference to bring together a wide range of researchers, practitioners, and graduate students whose work is related to the analysis of extreme values in a wide sense. Topics of interest include:
- Classical Extreme Value Theory  
- Multivariate extreme value statistics and dependence modelling  
- Functional extremes   
- Rare events   
- High dimensional / Dimension reduction  
- Spatial/spatio-temporal extremes  
- Risk analysis   
- Stochastic processes for extremes
