The meeting continued the biannual conference series Differentialgeometrie im Großen at the MFO which was established in the 60's by Klingenberg and Chern. While global Riemannian geometry with its connections to geometric analysis and topology remained an important focus of the conference, this time special emphasis was given to complex and symplectic geometry.

There were 50 participants from 8 countries, more specifically, 22 participants from Germany, 9 from other European countries, 1 from China, 19 from North-America. 10% of the participants were women. More than half of the participants (about 29) were young researchers (less than 10 years after diploma or B.A.), both on doctoral and postdoctoral level.

The official scientific program consisted of 22 one hour talks leaving plenty of time for informal discussions. The organizers would like to thank the institute staff for their great hospitality and support before and during the conference.
