The Calculus of Variations is subject with a long and distinguished history, a great deal of diverse current activity, and close connections to other fields such as geometry and mathematical physics. The July 2016 workshop on the Calculus of Variations presented research that resolved long-standing conjectures, shed new light on classical results, pointed toward new research directions, and displayed progress on a range of aspects, classical and otherwise, of the Calculus of Variations.
