Dear Friends and Colleges
It is a pleasure to announce our meeting which will be held at the University of Santiago (www.usach.cl) between January 7 and January 18 (2008). This meeting will focus on probabilistic and dynamical aspects of group and semigroup actions. The idea is to gather around 40 mathematicians interested in these topics and to create a working atmosphere with plenty of time for informal talks and discussions. The main scheduled activities will be the following three minicourses,

C. Connell (Indiana University): Poisson boundaries for hyperbolic groups.

A. Karlsson (Royal Institute of Technology): A non commutative ergodic theorem and applications.

K. Simon (Technical University of Budapest): Hausdorff dimension and absolute continuity of invariant measures.

Tentatively, there will be eight one hour sessions for each mini-course as to cover the topics with relative calm and depth.

The registration for this meeting is available on the website

The organization has limited funds. Please fill in the registration form before November 15 if you are applying for financial support.

We hope to see you during this meeting
