This volume features seventeen extended conference abstracts corresponding to selected talks given by participants at the CRM research program "Automorphisms of Free Groups: Algorithms, Geometry and Dynamics", which took place at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica in Barcelona in fall 2012. Most of them are short articles giving preliminary presentations of new results not yet published in regular research journals. The articles are the result from a direct collaboration among active researchers in the area after working in a dynamic and productive atmosphere. The book is intended for established researchers in the area of Group Theory, as well as for PhD and postdoc students who wish to learn more about the latest advances in this active area of research.
