Abstract
There are natural interactions between dimension theory, ergodic theory, additive combinatorics, metric number theory and analysis. Each of these fields provides different perspectives on, and complementary approaches to, the hierarchical structures which appear in fractal geometry.
The workshop will focus on recent advances at the interfaces of these fields, including:
 Classical fractals (selfsimilar and selfaffine sets, random fractals)
 Dimension theory and additive combinatorics
 Diophantine approximation and equidistribution
 Schmidt games
 Rigidity phenomena
 Scenery flow methods
 Projection and slice theorems
