IMPORTANT WARNING:  Scam / Phishing / SMiShing ! Note that ill-intentioned people may be trying to contact some of participants by email or phone to get money and personal details, by pretending to be part of the staff of our conference center (CIRM).  CIRM and the organizers will NEVER contact you by phone on this issue and will NEVER ask you to pay for accommodation/ board / possible registration fee in advance. Any due payment will be taken onsite at CIRM during your stay.

The proposed conference aims to bring together experts from different fields: group theory, ergodic theory, probability theory and descriptive set theory. The common interest is to study properties and invariants of infinite groups using various tools, like spectral theory, L2 theory, entropy, orbit equivalence, profinite methods, random walks and graph convergence. There is already considerable interaction between these fields and the proposed participants, but much more is needed. The conference will allow participants to assimilate each others language and will open new connections.

Le but de cette conférence est de réunir des experts issus de différents domaines : théorie des groupes, théorie ergodique, probabilités et théorie descriptive des ensembles. Le centre d’intérêts communs étant l’étude des propriétés et des invariants des groupes infinis en utilisant divers outils tels que la théorie spectrale, les invariants L2, l’entropie, l’équivalence orbitale, les méthodes profinies, les marches aléatoires et la convergence de graphes. Il existe déjà des interactions considérables entre ces sujets et les participants proposés, mais il en faut bien plus. La conférence permettra aux participants d’assimiler le langage les uns des autres et ouvrira de nouvelles connections.
