**Abstract**

This meeting was organised to take
stock of the rapid progress being made on twistor-string
theory and to encourage further cross-fertilization between string-theory, twistor theory
and perturbative gauge theory.
Twistor string theory was introduced by Witten in hep-th/0312171
as a string theory in twistor space that makes contact with N=4
super Yang-Mills theory on space-time via a generalization of the
Penrose-Ward transform augmented by certain D-instanton corrections.
It promises to combine many of the most attractive features of string
theory and twistor theory and has implications not only for
Yang-Mills but also for (conformal) gravity. It has in particular led to
major advances in the calculations of Yang-Mills scattering amplitudes with
applications to collider physics.
