Second Announcement of the Winter School on
              Toulouse, January 10-14, 2005

 The school will provide young as well as expert scientists with the  recent probabilistic tools developed for the investigation of high-dimensional systems. It is part of the European Network "Phenomena in High Dimension". It  will be composed of the following five courses:

 I.Benjamini (Rehovot) ``Random walks and Percolation on graphs''

 C.Borell (Goteborg) ``Minkowski sums in Gaussian analysis''

 K.Johansson (Stockholm) ``Determinantal Processes in Random Matrix Theory''

 G.Lugosi (Barcelona) ``Concentration of Functions of Independent Random Variables''

 R.Schneider (Freiburg) ``Convexity in Stochastic Geometry''

It is now time for participants:

   * to registrate:

         we had some technical problems with the online registration engine.
         So we ask you to registrate (to REGISTRATE AGAIN if you already did
         it through the online form) by sending an email to our secretary
         Mrs Michel

         specifying your NAME, your AFFILIATION, ADDRESS and DATES of attendance.

   * and to prepare their travel and accomodation plans:

         The expenses of the members of the PHD network are supported by
         their nodes (but it is likely that universities have to pay in
         advance and the RTN will reimburse when it is operating).

         We hope that we will have some money left to partially cover
         the expenses of participants not belonging to the network.
         Priority will be given to PHD Students and Post-Docs.
         If you need such support, please mention it in the registration
         email to Mrs Michel.
