The main focus of this program will be on the interaction between 3dimensional Hyperbolic Geometry and Holomorphic Dynamics. These two fields have flourished through the past 30 years, with numerous fruitful exchanges that have enriched both of them. In recent years, we have witnessed many exciting breakthroughs in the both fields. The program would provide an opportunity to reckon the recent achievements and to discuss further directions they open. Along with the above two main themes, we plan to incorporate into the program a number of related directions, including the theory of laminations, partially hyperbolic dynamics, and flows on moduli spaces. All of them are closely interconnected, in particular, through the theory of laminations which provides them with a unifying framework. Tentatively, the beginning of the program will concentrate on topics in partially hyperbolic dynamics, Teichmüller flow, and laminations, the middle part will focus on one and twodimensional holomorphic dynamics; and the end will cover various topics in hyperbolic geometry including the recent solution of longstanding conjectures in deformation theory of hyperbolic manifolds and recent advances in Thurston's Geometrization Program. Accordingly, the program will include two or three workshops and a number of graduate courses and minicourses on the topics of the program.

The program will aim to give a broad prospective of application of
renormalization ideas. The concentration will be in the areas where
renormalization and scaling invariance led to important recent progress,
such as onedimensional dynamics (real and complex), 2D conformal invariance,
geometric PDEs, and their connection to the underlying physics ideas.
The purpose is twofold: to survey the recent achievements and outline
new directions of research on the one hand; and to foster the interaction
between various branches of the dynamics and mathematical physics communities
working in renormalization.
The first half of the program will concentrate on the physical aspects of renormalization: statistical physics, conformal field theory, the underlying Hopfalgebraic structure, renormalization in PDE. The second half will have the dynamical flavour: holomorphic and smooth dynamics; KAM theory and renormalization of Hamiltonian flows; conformal invariance and universality in 2D stochastic processes. We also plan to touch on the recent breakthrough in the Geometrization Program based on the dynamics of the Ricci Flow and its connection to the concept of renormalization. The program will include two workshops: one in SeptemberOctober, focused on mathematical physics, and one in December, focused on Dynamics. There will be a series of graduate courses and minicourses on topics including:
 Renormalization in onedimensional dynamics;
 Renormalization in infinitedimensional dynamical systems;
 Renormalization in mathematical physics;
 Renormalization in Hamiltonian systems;
 Hopfalgebraic aspects of renormalization;
 Percolation, Brownian motion, and SLE.
