The International Association of Mathematical Physics hosts a
tri-annual congress to review the recent developments in the
field. The 13th congress in this series took place at Imperial
College, London, from 17th to 22nd July 2000. While quantum field
theory and statistical mechanics have been the major components of
these conferences, general relativity and quantum gravity have been
well represented at least since the early eighties and, over the
years, interest in sessions in our field has steadily increased.
At the London conference, Gerhard Huisken gave a plenary lecture on
