The short courses are intended to attract graduate students as well as researchers interested in the particular field. The idea is to present a broad (rather than deep) overview of the topic.

Observation: Suddenly, the organizers have been notified by Richard Verrall (July 3rd) and Caio Ibsen (July 12th) about their impossibility to present the initially announced short courses during the conference. We apologise for the confusion caused (being confused as well).

The Organizing and Scientific Committee are greatful to Dorota Kurowicka and Helio Migon for accepting to present alternative short courses. We strongly believe that the modern topics to be discussed will attract your attention.
