This workshop aims both to introduce people to a broad swath of the field and to frame its most important problems. Each day will be organized around a basic topic, such as how to count holomorphic curves with boundary on a Lagrangian submanifold (which leads to various versions of Floer theory) or how to understand the general structure of symplectic and contact manifolds. There will also be an introduction to the analytic and algebraic aspects of symplectic field theory, and a discussion of some applications.
