The meeting will discuss the theoretical and experimental status of searches for topologically non-trivial solutions in quantum field theories of particle physics, including the Standard Model and its extensions. It will cover both current and future colliders and cosmic searches both on Earth and in space. The topics will include black holes, magnetic monopoles, sphalerons, Q-balls and other solitonic solutions.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies is available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
