High-dimensional systems are frequent in mathematics and applied sciences, and the understanding of high-dimensional phenomena has become increasingly important. The mathematical subdisciplines most strongly related to such phenomena are functional analysis, convex geometry, and probability theory. In fact, a new area emerged, called asymptotic geometric analysis, which is at the very core of these disciplines and bears a number of deep connections to mathematical physics, numerical analysis, and theoretical computer science. The last two decades have seen a tremendous growth in this area. Far reaching results were obtained and various powerful techniques have been developed, which rather often have a probabilistic flavor. The purpose of this workshop was to explored these new perspectives, to reach out to other areas concerned with high-dimensional problems, and to bring together researchers having different angles on high-dimensional phenomena.
