This is an announcement of the conference on "Perspectives in High Dimensions," to be held on the campus of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A. from August 2 until August 6, 2010.

The aim of the conference is to reflect on recent and future developments in broadly understood geometric functional analysis, with emphasis on interactions with other subfields of mathematics and with other mathematical sciences, including but not limited to computer science, mathematical physics and statistics.

The scientific program will be set up under the guidance of the Scientific Committee consisting of Jean Bourgain, Emmanuel Candes, Persi Diaconis, Boaz Klartag, Stanislaw Szarek, Santosh Vempala, Roman Vershynin, and Elisabeth Werner.

The conference will be supported by the NSF via a Focused Research Grant, which involves Case Western Reserve University, Kent State University, The University of Michigan, and The University of Missouri. We expect to be able to provide support to a substantial number of participants, with priority given to graduate students, junior researchers and to those lacking their own research funding, as well as to members of underrepresented groups.

More details, including the names of plenary speakers, will be provided in the coming months. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
