Continuing a fruitful series of meetings, this Energy Landscapes workshop was devoted to all topics revolving around energy landscapes, as encountered in physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biology, applied mathematics, and computer science.

Topics of interest include but were not limited to:

- Exploration of complex energy landscapes,
- Modeling thermodynamics,
- Modeling kinetics,
- Applications to various systems, including glasses, clusters of atoms, crystalline solids, peptides and proteins, nucleic acids, large assemblies, and beyond (combinatorial optimization, ecology, etc),
- Algorithms and software development.

The format consisted of a small number of survey talks, contributed talks, poster and software sessions, leaving ample time for discussions. Free afternoons also contributed to exchanges.
