Tropical Geometry is a new and rapidly developing discipline that touches upon many branches of modern mathematics. It is characterized by the transition of algebro-geometric objects to piecewise-linear ones, thereby retaining much of the algebro-geometric data while unveiling novel sets of techniques for outstanding problems. The workshop provided an invaluable communication platform as the subject develops into a field of its own.
