In the past two decades, the theory of optimal transportation has emerged as a fertile field of inquiry, and a diverse tool for exploring applications within and beyond mathematics. This transformation occurred partly because long-standing issues could finally be resolved, but also because unexpected connections emerged which linked these questions to classical problems in geometry, partial differential equations, nonlinear dynamics, natural sciences, design problems and economics. The aim of this program will be to gather experts in optimal transport and areas of potential application to catalyze new investigations, disseminate progress, and invigorate ongoing exploration.
