The talks were in general excellent,and together they gave a panorama on how the classification program on separable,simple,nuclear C*-algebras (satisfying UCT) is right now. That means it is almost complete in a certain sense. However,just as important was it that the talks also pointed to the future,asking the poignant question:what's next? In that respect there were several intriguing things that were suggested. I myself am involved in one of these aspects(working closely together with two Canadian mathematicians,both of them attending the workshop in question),and we have made some significant progress. All in all, this was a most beneficial workshop for me.
