Workshop on Valuation Theory in Positive Characteristic
Mathematics Village, Sirince, Turkey
June 15 to 19, 2011

The aim of this workshop was to introduce young researchers to the open problems in valuation theory in positive and mixed characteristic, in particular those that are connected with local uniformization and the model theory of valued fields. Subjects studied included: the defect, structure theory of valued function fields, elimination of ramification, recent results on local uniformization by inseparable alteration.
