Aims of workshop :

This workshop is intended to bring together mathematicians and theoretical physicists interested in quantum chaos and its applications. In recent years there has been significant progress in this field culminating in the claim that the Bohigas-Giannoni-Schmit (BGS) conjecture - that chaotic systems have level-statistics predicted by random matrix theory (RMT) - has been proven. Thus it seems an ideal time to invite representatives of the communities working on related problems to meet and exchange ideas. Generally speaking, the aims of the workshop is to fully understand the recently developed techniques and to use them to investigate the wider implications of action correlations that go beyond the BGS conjecture. More specifically:

Practicalities :

The workshop will be in Banff (Alberta, Canada) from Sun 24 to Fri 29 February 2008, with accommodation and meals provided and paid-for by the Banff International Research Station (BIRS).
All participants (and organizers) are expected to pay their own travel costs.
The conference is in a ski resort in high season, so book your flight early if you want to get a good deal.
