General Concepts: The Advanced Working Group on Monopoles in Spin ice aims at bringing together researchers already informed or active in the field. While the programme will include short reviews on specific aspects and experimental techniques, it will be assumed that the participants are acquainted with the physics of monopole quasi-particles in spin ice materials from both a theoretical and experimental point of view. The programme will be comprised of focused 1 – 2 hour colloquia on specific topics, together with chaired discussion periods during which previous themes will be revisited. Each colloquium will begin with one or two review presentations, of maximum length 30 minutes, introducing the specific topic and related open questions. This introduction will be followed by discussion, which can be motivated by short presentations of 5 minutes and two transparencies. Calls will be made to participants wishing to make short presentations.
