Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in four-dimensional gauge theories with N=2 supersymmetry. This workshop aims to review the progress achieved so far and to identify new avenues for exploration. Topics will include (i) gauge/string dualities; (ii) N=2 superconformal field theories; (iii) integrability techniques; (iv) connections to Liouville and Toda theories; (v) S-duality.
The workshop will run over two days, and we expect to have 14-16 talks in total.

The meeting has significant overlap with a number of theoretical and mathematical physics topics including: string theory, Liouville and Toda theories, N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories and their dualities, as well as the gauge-string correspondence and its connection to integrability.
