The meeting \emph{Pro- Extensions of Global Fields and pro- Groups} was organised by Nigel Boston (Madison), John Coates (Cambridge) and Fritz Grunewald (D\"{u}sseldorf). As the name of the meeting conveys, a primary aim was to bring together group theorists working in the field of pro- groups and number theorists interested in pro- extensions of global fields. The workshop consisted of over talks, supplemented by informal discussions. Topics included: Galois groups of extensions with restricted ramification, self-similar and automata groups, non-commutative Iwasawa theory, groups acting on rooted trees. This meeting was well attended with over participants; more than of these came from countries other than Germany. The range of topics and the diverse backgrounds of the participants led to a stimulating exchange of recent results, challenging problems and general ideas. The organisers and participants thank the \emph{Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach} for providing the setting for this successful workshop. The following extended abstracts appear in the chronological order of the talks; they were collected and edited by Benjamin Klopsch (D\"{u}sseldorf).
