The main goals of the workshop are to facilitate the exchange of tools, techniques, questions, and ideas that will lead to a better understanding of (hyperbolic) continuum percolation/random geometric graphs; and to form new (international) collaborations for the exploration of this exciting research frontier. The workshop will be considered a success if by the end of the workshop some new international joint research projects have been seeded, and if overall the participants have gained a deeper perspective on the behaviour of non-Euclidean continuum percolation/random geometric graphs, as well as the introduction of new geometric models, and can continue to push the field further forward. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from various places in the world and from different communities working on continuum percolation, random geometric graphs, and modelling self-organizing networks. A particular focus of the workshop will be on non-classical models of RGG, e.g. non-Euclidean, soft or dynamic models, but of course there will also be plenty of scope for work on the traditional models.
