The conference was motivated by the recent solutions of two longstanding questions. The first one is Kato's square root problem, i.e.~whether for an elliptic operator in divergence form on $L_2(\R^n)$ we have $\norm{L^{1/2}u}\leq C \norm{\nabla u} + C\norm{u}$ for $u\in W^1_2(\R^n)$. After a long development over 40 years this was shown in a joint effort by P.~Auscher, S.~Hofmann, M.~Lacey, A.~McIntosh and Ph.~Tchamitchian. For a new approach to this important result via Dirac operators and extensions of it, see the abstracts of A.~McIntosh and S.~Keith. The second problem, attributed to Br{\'e}zis in the eighties, asks whether the Cauchy problem for every generator of an analytic semigroup $A$ in an $L_q(\Omega)$-space with $1
