DESCRIPTION:\n\nThe Itzykson Conference is held every year at the Institut
de Physique Théorique in Saclay to honour the memory of Claude Itzykson.
The 20th edition of this conference\, which took place on June 10-12 2015
\, was devoted to random surfaces and random geometry.\n\nA first theme wa
s the study of random maps\, or discretized surfaces\, which has recently
seen major advances using tools from algebra and geometry (topological rec
ursion\, discrete integrability)\, combinatorics (unified bijections) and
probability theory (rigorous construction of the Brownian map\, the scalin
g limit of random maps\, and of their local limits).\n\nA second theme was
the study of Liouville field theory\, a continuous approach to quantum gr
avity\, string theory and random surfaces initiated by Polyakov in 1981\,
whose mathematical understanding was recently sharpened. Unifying this app
roach with the discrete one via random maps is a hot topic of research.\n\
nA third theme concerned random geometries in higher dimension\, in the co
ntext of quantum gravity (tensor models\, random triangulations\, etc) and
string theories\, which forms another very active area.\n\nFinally\, ques
tions concerning random surfaces and random geometries in condensed matter
\, soft matter\, biophysics (interfaces and membranes) and social sciences
(complex networks) were also tackled.\n\nOrganizing committee: Jérémie
Bouttier\, François David\, Bertrand Eynard and Laure Sauboy (secretary).
\nSponsors and benefactors: IPhT (CEA and CNRS)\, DSM\, LabEx LMH\, LabE
x PALM\, ANR Cartaplus\, ANR Graal\, Fondation Daniel Iagolnitzer\, Michae
