In recent years, the most interesting developments in the theory of two-dimensional critical phenomena have emerged from a developing field that might be called Conformal Probability Theory which complements the extensive work (starting from the 1970's) in the Physics community on Conformal Field Theory. Substantial progress has been made in understanding the random fractal geometry of such two-dimensional systems as critical percolation and critical Ising models and their relation with such classic probabilistic objects as the frontier of two-dimensional Brownian motion. Among the topics to be treated in this workshop are: SLE and its Extensions, Critical and Near-Critical Scaling Limits, Gaussian Free Field, Coulomb Gas Methods, Relation to Conformal Field Theory and Quantum Gravity.
