In multiscale modeling hierarchy, kinetic theory plays a vital role in connecting microscopic Newtonian mechanics and macroscopic continuum mechanics. As computing power grows, numerical simulation of kinetic equations has become possible and undergone rapid development over the past decade. Yet the unique challenges arising in these equations, such as high-dimensionality, multiple scales, random inputs, positivity, entropy dissipation, etc., call for new advances of numerical methods. This mini-workshop brought together both senior and junior researchers working on various fast-paced growing numerical aspects of kinetic equations. The topics include, but were not limited to, uncertainty quantification, structure-preserving methods, phase transitions, asymptotic-preserving schemes, and fast methods for kinetic equations.
