Applied Probability Day (APD) first took place in April 1992 at Columbia University as a one-day international event and has been successfully repeated annually since. It traditionally takes place on a Friday (although it is on a Thursday this year), 9:00am-6:00pm, leaving the weekend free for visitors to enjoy the many attractions of New York City.
