The 37 contributions to the June 2015 workshop demonstrate that GribovAEs ideas and approaches to several particle physics problems, such as the theoretical construction of a consistent picture of high energy hadron interactions, quantum anomalies, and color confinement, are being actively used and developed in the 21st century.
