The PBW structures play a very important role in the Lie theory and in the theory of algebraic groups. The importance is due to the huge number of possible applications. The main goal of the workshop was to bring together experts and young researchers working in the certain areas in which PBW structures naturally appear. The interaction between the participants allowed to find new viewpoints on the classical mathematical structures and to launch the study of new directions in geometric, algebraic and combinatorial Lie theory.
