The Southern California Probability Symposium (SCPS) is an annual event. Probablists from Southern California and beyond have been gathering at the SCPS since its inception. Ted Harris (USC) founded the symposium in about 1970 to spur the exchange of ideas and foster research collaborations within the region. This annual gathering has contributed to the development of a vibrant community of probablists in Southern California, and continues to serve as an exciting place for interactions.

Amber Puha (California State University San Marcos) is the current coordinator. The annual scientific organizational duties rotate amongst the probability groups at the following five prominent Southern California research universities: University of California IrvineUniversity of California Los AngelesUniversity of California Santa BarbaraUniversity of California San Diego, and University of Southern California.
