The last decade has seen an explosion of results in percolation theory in the fields of mathematics and physics, including applications of conformal field theory, the development of Stochastic Loewer Theory, application to to various forms of scale-free and random networks, and the discovery of numerous exact and rigorous results. New variations on percolation, such as "explosive percolation" have recently emerged. The focus of this meeting is to discuss some of these exciting developments and to stimulate new collaborations for solving these problems.
