The main objective of the workshop is to review recent developments and to discuss future directions in the field of hydrodynamic limits. The topics will include: non-gradient models, lattice gas automata, large deviations, Boltzmann equation, Burger's equation, statistical mechanics and open problems. Invited one hour lectures, contributed talks, poster session and other activities will take place between October 7-10, 1998.
