The classical subject of hyperbolic conservation laws has experienced dynamic growth in recent years. For systems in a single space dimension with small data a well-posedness theory of entropy weak solutions is well-known; for large data, however, global existence or finite-time blowup is still open. Analysis in several space dimensions remains an enormous challenge. This one-day event will bring together some of the leading researchers in the world to disucss recent theoretical and numerical developements.
