This workshop will bring together leading experts in and around the area where statistical mechanics, integrability, conformal field theory, and combinatorics meet and in some sense overlap. A primary goal of the workshop is to encourage research collaborations across the traditional divides between the research communities interested in the separate disciplines. Significant recent developments stem from this kind of cross fertilisation, and our aim is to cultivate further such collaborations and widen the scope of their successes. Focus will be on the mathematical aspects of the four key topics, with particular emphasis on generalisations of the Razumov-Stroganov conjecture; combinatorial points of integrable quantum chains; scaling limits and finite-size corrections of integrable systems; and logarithmic conformal field theory.
