This is a combination of a conference and workshop on cluster algebras and their relations to geometry, representation theory and combinatorics. The workshop will take place in Morelia (a colonial town about 250km west of Mexico-City), December 8-13, 2008 followed by the conference in Mexico-City, December 15-20. The Research in this area developed with amazing speed after the introduction of cluster algebras around 2001 by Sergey Fomin and Andrei Zelevinsky and has attracted a variety of first rate mathematicians throughout the world, for instance Alexander Goncharov, Bernhard Keller, Maxim Kontsevich, Bernard Leclerc, Idun Reiten and Claus Michael Ringel, most of them being ICM speakers. A good way to get an overview of the intense activities related to cluster algebras is Sergey Fomin's cluster algebras portal: http://www.math.lsa.umich.edu/~fomin/cluster.html see also section below for some discussion of the impact of cluster algebras.
