The Meeting

The purpose of the winter school is to give young scientists the opportunity to learn
from distinguished researchers about active fields of research in statistical mechanics.

There will be two mini courses. The first treats Schramm-Loewner evolution and will be
delivered by Vincent Beffara. The second one deals with random walks in random environ-
ment with a view towards percolation environments and will be given by Vladas Sidoravicius.

Additionally, there will be accompanying lectures given by invited speakers.
