The Fourteenth Colloquiumfest explored the present state of Fixed Point Theory and its applications in analysis, algebra and computer science. The second theme was the Theory of Fractals, in particular the various existing definitions and the question how to adapt them to structures that appear to be fractal but do not match the classical definitions. Both subjects are interwoven and also have interesting connections with topology. We discussed new directions and research topics in these areas.
