This workshop will focus on recent progress in central problems in symplectic and contact topology and Hamiltonian dynamics such as rigidity of Lagrangian submanifolds, algebra/topology/geometry of symplectomorphism and contactomorphism groups, exotic symplectic and contact structures, and existence of periodic orbits of Hamiltonian systems and Reeb flows. It will explain applications of the "large machines" such as Floer Theory, Symplectic Field Theory and Fukaya categories, showing where these machines do not yet provide satisfactory answers. Special attention will also be paid to articulating new problems and directions, as well as to explaining interactions between symplectic and contact topology and other fields.
