Synopsis: The strategy of geometric analysis on Riemannian manifolds is to use partial differential equations for deriving results in topology and geometry. Analysis on metric spaces is important in both theoretic and applied mathematics. Recently, there are many new insights concerning with continuous metric spaces, e.g. Alexandrov spaces, metric measure spaces, Ricci limit spaces, and discrete metric spaces, e.g. graphs and simplicial complexes. There are many ubiquitous properties shared by continuous spaces and discrete ones. Curvature is a notion originally developed in differential and Riemannian geometry, and has been introduced to metric spaces for understanding the geometry of non-smooth spaces. We propose to bring together experts on related fields with various background to discuss recent developments.
