The conference will celebrate 50 years of Ergodic Theory in Jerusalem, and will coincide with Professor Hillel Furstenberg’s 80th birthday.

The scientific program will consist of lectures by leading young researchers, reporting on the state of the research in a broad range of subjects, many of which have their origins in the Jerusalem school of Ergodic Theory. These topics include, among others, interactions of ergodic theory and number theory, group theory, probability, random walk theory, and fractal geometry.
