Studies of complex phenomena are central to the research areas united by the title of the conference. In the recent years, one has witnessed a remarkable progress in these fields, not least due to a successful application of ideas and methods developed in one area in other areas.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together leading researchers from various fields to discuss current developments and open problems, and to facilitate the exchange of ideas. The scope of the problems, which we would like to discuss, lies in the intersection of Probability Theory and Information Theory, Dynamical Systems and Statistical Mechanics.

The topics to be discussed include percolation, random walks, symbolic dynamics, coding, entropy and many others. These subjects are important both from pure and applied points of view, and attract researchers from academia and industry.

This workshop is also a tribute to Professor Mike Keane who is a top expert in this field.
