The dynamics of waves and patterns play a significant role in the sciences, especially in fluid mechanics, material science, neuroscience and ecology. The mathematical treatment interconnects several areas, ranging from evolution equations and functional analysis to dynamical systems, geometry, topology, and stochastic as well as numerical analysis. This workshop has specifically focussed on dynamic stability on extended domains, bifurcations of waves and patterns, effects of stochastic driving, and spatio-temporal inhomogenities. During the workshop, multiple new directions, collaborations, and very interesting scientific conversations arose across the entire field.
