The study of random graphs and random planar maps has been an attractive and fruitful field of research in the last decades, with contributions coming from various communities, including probabilists, combinatorists and theoretical physicists.

While the geometric properties of these discrete structures are still being actively investigated, the study of random processes on these objects has received an increasing interest and spectacular progress has been made in the recent years.

This conference will gather worldwide experts on random graphs and on random processes. The goal will be to discuss recent progress and open questions on the topic of random processes on random discrete structures, with an emphasis on random walks, percolation models and interacting particle systems.
