Motivic Integration and its Interactions with Model Theory and Non-Archimedean Geometry

The objective was to realise progress on Motivic Integration by gathering some of the leading specialists active in and around this domain and neighbouring domains such as Rigid Geometry and Model Theory.

The short courses were of particular importance because they offered a survey of some recent developments in domains in full expansion. In particular, it was the first time that all major approaches to non-Archimedean geometry were presented and explained at the same conference. The short course on motivic integration covered the various formalisms developed since Kontsevich’ original work. Since these developments are not cumulative and each of the theories presents its own merits in particular applications, it was quite fruitful to introduce them all and to allow for a comparison of their specific characteristics.
