This workshop is to lay the foundations for the upcoming program. Mini-courses comprising lectures and exercise/discussion sessions will cover the foundational aspects of tropical geometry as well as its connections with adjacent areas: symplectic geometry, several complex variables, algebraic geometry (in particular enumerative and computational aspects) and geometric combinatorics. The mini-courses will be augmented by research talks on current tropical develpoments to open the scene and set up new goals in the beginning semester.
