The focus of the conference were recent interactions between model theory, group theory and combinatorics in finite geometries. In some cases, in particular in non-archimedean geometry or combinatorics in finite geometries, model theory appeared as tool. In other cases, like in ergodic theory and dynamics or in the theory of stable groups and more general neo-stable algebraic structures like valued fields, the focus was on model theoretic questions and classification results for such structures. In this way, the conference presented the broad range of topics of modern model theory.
