Connections between subfactor theory and conformal field theory have been expected since the early days of the former in 1980’s, and recently we see more and more evidence for deeper relations. It was our aim to attract experts from a wide range of topics related to subfactors and CFT. Many of the participants met for the first time at Oberwolfach, and there were numerous very fruitful interactions.
