Geometry and Physics of Spatial Random Systems

International Conference

Geometry and Physics of Spatial Random Systems

Freudenstadt (Black Forest),   9 –13 Sept 2013

An interdisciplinary exploration between mathematics and physics of systems with disordered spatial structure

Deadline for expression of interest in participation/contribution: 17 May 2013 [see details]

The conference is organised by the research unit Geometry and physics of spatial random systems funded by the German Science Foundation DFG, with research activities at the interface of mathematics and physics. We are anticipating around 80 participants, and a program consisting of approximately 8 keynote lectures, 18 invited talks and 8 contributed talks, as well as scientific posters. There will be no parallel sessions. We hope for a balanced colourful mix of participants, from physics, and mathematics, as well as from related disciplines. We encourage all speakers to make their talks accessible and enjoyable for both communities. The venue, Hotel Zollernblick, is situated in Freudenstadt in the northern Black Forest, about 3 hours from Frankfurt.
