Berlin, July 17-21, 2023

There is an upper bound of 40 participants. Registration is free but mandatory, via the online registration form.

Registration is closed.

Group picture

The school will focus on configuration spaces, seen through the different lenses of analysis, geometry, and probability. Aim of the school is to bring together different communities in the theory of point processes, configuration-space analysis, and particle systems.

It will consist of four mini courses by Ronan Herry, Benedikt Jahnel, Alessia Nota, and Elena Pulvirenti.
A number of talks given by young scientists will provide further insight into the various research branches of the field of this school.

The summer school is organised in the framework of the DFG priority programme SPP2265.

The conference booklet, with timetable and abstracts is available here. If you want just the schedule, you can find it here here.

The school will start in the morning of Monday, July 17, and end before lunch on Friday, July 21.
The Conference Dinner will take place on Wednesday evening at the Biergarten Alter Krug Dahlem, close to the conference venue.

The venue of the school is the Harnack-Haus at Ihnestraße 16-20, 14195 Berlin-Dahlem.
Most of the event will take place in the Goethe-Saal.

Getting there

The venue is close to the U-Bahn station Freie Universität (Thielplatz), on the U3 line.

From the hotel Motel One Berlin-Tiergarten, it can be reached in 25 minutes by taking the U3 at the Wittenbergplatz train station towards Krumme Lanke.

The organisers have reserved hotel rooms at the hotel Motel One Berlin-Tiergarten. During the registration process, you will be able to ask us to book a room for you.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of the two organisers:
