The purpose of the meeting was to relate and study new developments in the geometry and topology of Riemannian manifolds with lower curvature bounds. Special emphasis was given to lower Ricci curvature bounds in the sense of Lott-Villani and Sturm and to the gradient flow on metric spaces as well as to manifolds with a lower sectional curvature bound.
