Over the last few years there has been a flurry of results in the theory of Communications and Networks which draw heavily on Random Matrix Theory and Statistical Physics. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers from both disciplines with interest in applications to present recent results and methodologies.
The workshop will take place on November 17-18, 2014 at the Institut Henri Poincare, 11 Rue Pierre et Marie Curie, 75005 Paris, France. For more specific information please contact A. Moustakas (arislm (at) phys.uoa.gr).
