The workshop {\bf{Wave Motion}} that took place in the period January 25--31, 2004 was devoted to the study of nonlinear wave phenomena. The modelling of waves leads to a variety of difficult mathematical issues, involving several domains of mathematics: partial differential equations, harmonic analysis, dynamical systems, topological degree theory. The progam of the workshop consisted in 18 talks, presented by international specialists in nonlinear waves coming from England, France, Germany, Japan, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, U.S.A., and by three discussion sessions on the topics "Open Problems in PDEs", "Stability Phenomena in the Theory of Nonlinear Waves", and "Geodesic Flows and Fluid Mechanics". Moreover, several doctoral and post-doctoral fellows participated in the workshop and did benefit from the unique academic atmosphere at the Oberwolfach Institute. The proceedings of the workshop "Wave Motion" will appear as a special issue of the {\em{Journal of Nonlinear Mathematical Physics}}.
