Packing problems have a long and fascinating history, and the subject is active today on many fronts. The core of the subject presents us with idealized mathematical challenges, of which the most famous is the Kepler problem, while applications and implications span most of the sciences, engineering and industrial sectors (including pharmaceuticals and catalysis).

The aim of the International Workshop on Packing Problems was to provide a forum for the discussion of packing problems in many of these fields. The lively exchange of ideas at the workshop proved that this was fully achieved. The suggestion to turn the workshop into a biennial event was readily accepted with various institutions offering to host it in 2014.
