Mini-courses will be given by Persi Diaconis, Yuval Peres and Laurent Saloff-Coste. In addition, there will be several lectures given by Pietro Caputo, Elchanan Mossel and Perla Sousi. The workshop is geared toward graduate students, but post-docs and
talented, advanced undergraduates should also find it worthwhile. There is a certain amount of support for housing (but not for airfare). Registration is open until July 31, 2015.
