The workshop brought together experts in the young and rapidly developing mathematical fields of Geometric group theory, hyperbolic dynamics and symplectic geometry. The activities included talks on recent achievements and breakthroughs by world renowned mathematicians as well as graduate students and postdocs. The workshop witnessed many informal discussions between the participants, exchange of questions and conjectures and as one of the highlights an open problem session. A list of open problems is, besides of the extended abstracts of talks, contained in the present report.
