The ties between combinatorics and probability run so deep that for
many deep and interesting problems, it is nonsensical to try to assign
one category or the other. The subject of this workshop is these sorts
of problems, many of which in fact come from the theoretical computer
science and statistical physics communities. Most of the speakers
straddle two or several of these areas in their research. We expect the
workshop to both expose participants to cutting edge research in
combinatorics and probability, and, importantly, to lead to fruitful
discussions and the opening of new avenues of research.
