Monte Carlo methods play a significant role in today's science as well as in engineering. The workshop is dedicated to the exchange of ideas on methods as well as on the application of Monte Carlo methods.

As has been the tradition, the workshop features invited as well as contributed talks. Time and space is also available for poster contributions. Student contributions are welcome!

Participation is free of charge.
