International Conference

Geometry and Physics of Spatial Random Systems

An interdisciplinary exploration between mathematics and physics of disordered spatial structures   


Bad Herrenalb (Black Forest),  10-15 Sept 2017

The conference is organised by the research unit Geometry and physics of spatial random systems funded by the German Science Foundation DFG, with research activities at the interface of mathematics and physics. We are anticipating around 100 participants, and a program consisting of 8 keynote lectures and a number of invited  and contributed talks, as well as scientific posters. There will be no parallel sessions. We are hoping for a balanced colourful mix of participants, from physics, and mathematics, as well as from related disciplines. We encourage all speakers to make their talks accessible and enjoyable for both communities. The venue, The Church House of the Protestant Academy Baden, is situated in Bad Herrenalb in the northern Black Forest, about 2 hours from Frankfurt by train.
