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''.
