Now in its second year,  the OIST  workshop "RMT2013" aims to bring togther scientists from diverse backgrounds, in order to discuss key questions in Random Matrix Theory for fluctuation in complex systems.

Topics to be addressed : 

  • Moduli space, intersection numbers, and Riemann zeta.
  • Protein folding, topology, secondary structure of RNA.
  • Field theory, conformal field theory,  and RMT.
  • Entanglement, network and statistics.

We will have 40 participants including 8 lecturers.  Students and post-docs are encouraged for participations.  All participants are invited only for the reason of the limited space.  Please apply online by filling in the webform on the "Application" page for selections.  The invited participants are fully supported for the traffic transfer, accommodations and meals.

OIST will handle the logistics of accommodation, travel, and meals for all workshop participants. OIST will also help with arranging visas when necessary.
