In January 2012 we celebrate 100 years from the birthday of the great mathematician of the 20th century, Nobel prize winner L.V. Kantorovich. Among a number of his outstanding achievements special role is played by the study of the general setting of the optimal mass transportation problem originally posed by Monge. The idea of the conference is to present, by means of a series of talks given by leading world experts in the field, the state of the art in the modern optimal mass transportation theory, covering the whole range of its recent developments and applications.

Program committee: A. Vershik, G. Buttazzo, S. Novikov, E. Stepanov, N. Uraltseva, C. Villani Tentative list of speakers: S.Bobkov, V. Bogachev, L. Brasco, G. Buttazzo, G. Carlier, L. De Pascale, I.
