Nonlinear PDE with an underlying energy structure, and in particular gradient flows in different metrics, have become a hot topic in mathematical research in recent years. Despite many advances in the analysis of their well-posedness and development of structure-preserving numerical approximations, important questions remain open, and pose challenging mathematical problems in various ways.

The talks revolved around gradient flows, efficient numerical methods and gradient flows on discrete structures.
