The workshop was organized by V. Bangert (Freiburg), Yu. D. Burago (St. Petersburg) and U. Pinkall (Berlin). Out of the 47 participants 22 came from Germany, 8 from the United States, 7 from Switzerland, 4 from Russia, 4 from England and 2 from France.

The official program consisted of 20 lectures and included four lectures by B. Kleiner (Ann Arbor) on “Perelman's work on Ricci flow'”. The program covered a wide range of new developments in geometry. To name some of them, we mention the topics “Metric space geometry in the style of Alexandrov/Gromov”, “Finsler geometry”, “Constant mean curvature surfaces in Thurston geometries”.
