This has been the third workshop around Statistical Mechanics organized in the last 6 years. The main topic consisted of spatial random processes and their connections to statistical mechanics. The common underlying theme of the subjects discussed at the meeting is the existence of a scaling limit, i.e., a continuum object that approximates the discrete one under study at sufficiently large spatial scales. The specific topics that have been discussed included two-dimensional and high-dimensional critical models, random graphs and various random geometric problems, such as random interlacements, polymers, etc. The workshop bolstered interactions between groups of researchers in these areas and led to interesting and fruitful exchanges of ideas.
