The study of automorphisms of free groups is a classical subject, with more than 100 years of history. The last 25 years have witnessed the development of many interesting new tools, resulting in the subject's diversification into algorithmic, geometric and dynamical aspects. While these aspects continue to be heavily intertwined, they have meanwhile taken root in several other areas of mathematics. The purpose of the proposed program is to assemble experts from these three aspects, with the object of finding innovative approaches to the main open questions from each.
