Frieze patterns were introduced in the early 1970s by Coxeter. They are infinite arrays of numbers in which every four neighbouring entries always satisfy the same arithmetic relation. Amazingly, friezes appear in many situations from various areas of mathematics: projective geometry, number theory, algebraic combinatorics, difference equations, integrable systems, representation theory, cluster algebras…

The mini-workshop aimed to gather researchers with diverse fields of expertise to present recent developments and to discuss new directions of investigation and open problems around friezes.
