Abstract
It is evident from the lectures at this meeting that the subject of systems of hyperbolic conservation laws is flourishing as one of the prototypical examples of the modern mode of applied mathematics. Research in this area often involves strong and close interdisciplinary interactions among diverse areas of applied mathematics including

Large (and small) scale computing

Asymptotic modelling

Qualitative modelling

Rigorous proofs for suitable prototype problems
