In the last two decades every two years the HRP (short for Hopping and Related Phenomena) has been organized. The conferences took place in Trieste (1985), Bratislava (1987), Chapel Hill (1989), Marburg (1991), Glasgow (1993), Jerusalem (1995), Rackeve (1997), Murcia (1999), Shefayim (2001) and Trieste (2003). In the conference in Trieste organized by Harald Böttger the following topics had some emphasis: glassy relaxation behavior of electronic systems, metal-insulator transition and glassy state in two-dimensional systems, noise, Coulomb glass, transport in biological systems and hopping transport. It shows that over these years transport by hopping has become increasingly relevant in a variety of areas; glassy or nanostructured materials and non-crystalline solids, like polymers and biological systems being good examples. To stress the connection with the new developments more clearly, at the last meeting in Trieste the title of the conference was changed into: "Transport in Disordered and Interacting Systems (TIDS)". It means that after 10 conferences the present meeting is named TIDS11. TIDS11 will be concentrated on three main areas: semiconductors, polymers & organic crystals, and biological systems, all linked by the common theme of the peculiarities of the transport processes. The past conferences have created the pleasant atmosphere needed for a fruitful exchange of ideas between theoreticians and experimentalists in these areas. With your contributions we hope to achieve the same at the coming conference in Egmond aan Zee.
