General Relativity is one of the triumphs of twentieth century physics. Its spectacular predictions include gravitational waves, black holes, and spacetime singularities. The mathematical study of this theory leads to deep problems connecting the areas of partial differential equations, geometry and topology with physics. The talks of the workshop illustrated the rapid progress in this subject over the last few years.
