The workshop presents recent results in areas related to heavy tails, extremes and dependence, including topics on a) weak convergence for heavy tailed dependent processes and time series; b) stationary and stable processes; c) stable random fields; d) regular variation and heavy tails; e) complex stochastic systems: random matrices and random networks with heavy tails. The workshop will feature 4 expository lectures by Gennady Samorodnitsky and Clément Dombry on related background for graduate students and people interested in these areas, and include around 20 talks on recent research advances by well-established or young researchers. There are also a few open problem sessions and a poster session. Funding opportunities are available, with priority given to graduate students and junior researchers.
