Random Walks with Memory
May 29 – June 2, 2017

Non-­Markovian random walks have emerged as central topics in modern probability, including models with long-­memory effects produced by self-interaction or the influence of random media. 
These models provide a variety  of  complex large-­‐scale  disordered phenomena with motivations arising from fields such as physics, biology and engineering. Deep relations have emerged or are conjectured with quantum field theory, the KPZ universality class and the theory of Anderson localization. 
This meeting will emphasize non-­‐reversible random walks in random environments and self-­interacting random walks, for which fundamental questions have resisted repeated and persistent attempts to answer them. On the other hand, recent  groundbreaking results have been obtained.  
We propose to organize a workshop gathering the world-­‐experts on this and related fields  with  the  objective  of  producing  a  decisive  impulse  on  these challenges.
