The dynamics of polymers dispersed in a fluid displays a large variety of complex phenomena. Small amounts of polymer additives are indeed sufficient to considerably change the rheological properties of a Newtonian fluid. Important examples are elastic turbulence and turbulent drag reduction. The last decade has seen major advances in the understanding of polymer dynamics. Still, many scientific issues remain open requiring a joint effort of experiments, numerics, and theory. The aim of this workshop is to gather experts in the field in order to discuss recent findings and stimulate scientific interactions.
