The goal of this workshop is to bring together theorists and experimentalists to discuss problems related to viscoelastic flow instabilities; assess successes as well as examples of lack of predictability in current theory, models and simulations; identify theoretical pathways linking tools of statistical and polymer physics to mean field models of the flows; and highlight applications of these instabilities. The ultimate goal is to bring this community together and clarify unifying/open questions for future research to address.
