The muon anomalous magnetic moment is one of the most precisely measured observables in particle physics, which at the same time can be predicted by theory with the required accuracy. It is at the same time a monitor for in depth testing the Standard Model as well as for finding deviations from it caused by unknown physics. The aim of the Workshop is to gather leading experts as well as new faces having new ideas to work on the improvement of the predictions of the Hadronic contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment, in particular on the challenging hadronic light-by-light scattering problem. The goal is to trigger new activities which should lead to the theoretical improvements required for a successful confrontation of theory and experiment once the results from the next generation of experiments at Fermilab and at J-PARC are available.
