As part of the full-year 2000-2001 program on Operator Algebras, MSRI will host a one-week workshop on Free Probability and Non-Commutative Banach Spaces, January 22-26, 2001. The Free Probability section of the workshop will cover several aspects of the subject: applications to von Neumann algebras and C*-algebras of free product type, connections with random matrix theory, free stochastic processes and free stochastic integration, combinatorial approach via noncrossing partitions, free entropy. Probable participants in the Free Probability section include: G. Ben Arous, H. Bercovici, P. Biane, M. Bozejko, M. Anshelevich, T. Cabanal - Duvillard, K. Dykema, L. Ge, D. Gaboriau, A. Guionnet, U. Haagerup, K. Johannsen, A. Nica, F. Radulescu, D. Shlyakhtenko, R. Simion, R. Speicher, M. Stefan, S. Thorbjoernsen, D.Voiculescu, P.Zinn - Justin. The Non-commutative Banach Space section will cover the central concepts of the recently developed theory of operator spaces such as: exactness, local reflexivity and injectivity with applications to C* tensor products, operator algebras and operator modules. The non-commutative Lp-spaces, which play an important role in this theory, provide many points of contact with free probability. Probable participants in the Noncommutative Banach Spaces section include: W. Arveson, D. Blecher, E.G. Effros, U. Haagerup, M. Junge, E. Kirchberg, C. Le Merdy, J. Kraus, B. Magajna, N. Ozawa, T. Oikhberg, V. Paulsen, G. Pisier, C. Pop, N. Randrianantoanina, H.P. Rosenthal, Z.-J. Ruan, A. Sinclair, R. Smith, C. Webster
