The workshop brought together three very different areas of mathematics, namely singularity theory, integrable systems and quantum cohomology. They are linked by their applications in topological quantum field theory and by constructions of (often isomorphic) Frobenius manifolds. The first and second are related by a version of mirror symmetry, the link of the second and third has attracted much attention. The connection of the first and third is the least developed and was at the focus of the workshop.
