Nonperturbative effects are responsible for chiral symmetry breaking, confinement and complex phenomena such as the existence of nuclei. They have been analyzed from different perpectives and by different methods. Best known is lattice QCD which is in principle an exact method but is in practice greatly restricted by the limited power of todays computers. Other methods can provides us exact results for the low-energy limit of QCD. For example, Chiral Perturbation Theory, Chiral Random Matrix Theory, Small Volume expansions. Other approaches that have had a great deal of impact are semi-classical methods with Instanton Liquid Models as best known example. One of the major breakthroughs in lattice QCD during the past few years is the development of algorithms allowing us to simulation full QCD with light or zero quark mass. The main goal of this workshop is to understand the lattice results for full QCD with light quarks by means of the abovementioned theories for the low-energy limit of the QCD partition function. Our main focus will be on exact results in QCD. We expect that confronting the most active researches in these areas will allow us to seek and address questions with regards to chiral symmetry in QCD with light quarks. One part of our workshop will be the analysis of results obtained by means of recent algorithms for simulating chiral fermions such as Ginsparg-Wilson fermions and Domain wall fermions. A second part will be the discussion of recent progress for exact results for the low-energy limit of QCD. Among others me mention the description of the Dirac spectrum by means of partially quenched chiral perturbation theory and chiral Random Matrix Theory. A third part will be the discussion of exact non-perturbative results for QCD at finite density. In recent years a large number of scenarios have been sketched for QCD with three colors. However, because of the failure of Monte-Carlo simulations, these speculations could not be tested. However, Bose-Einstein condensation phase transition has been predicted for QCD with two colors and has been observed by means of recent lattice QCD simulations.
