In recent years, the interplay between traditional geometric topology and theoretical physics, in particular quantum ?eld theory, has played a signi?cant role in the work of many researchers. The idea of this workshop was to bring these people together so that the ?elds will be able to grow together in the future. Most of the talks were related to various flavors of field theories and differential cohomology theories.
