Abstract: Special functions and orthogonal polynomials is a very classical subject with numerous applications in both pure and applied mathematics. Tremendous progresses in this area have been achieved recently and new connections with other research areas such as random matrices, Riemann-Hilbert problems, etc. have been found. It is the aim of this minisymposim to provide a forum for researchers with diverse backgrounds whose research interests overlap with special functions and orthogonal polynomials. The speakers will report the latest developments in these areas, exchange their expertise, experience and insights. We hope this minisymposium will strengthen the connections among people in the relevant areas and stimulate future research.
