The workshop aims to present and facilitate discussion of approaches to systems of many particles, which at some level of modelling undergo spatial motion and stochastically interact when they collide or at least get very close. Classic applications of such systems include gas dynamics, particle coagulation and chemical reactions, but zoological and other application areas will also be considered. Alongside strong law of large numbers type results the workshop will showcase methods for obtaining further information to complement a characteristic limiting equation.
