In 1987, Jerry Marsden (University of California at Berkeley) and Klaus Kirchgässner (Universität Stuttgart) organized their first Oberwolfach workshop on fluids and plasmas. The workshop was very successful and this was the beginning of a whole series of Oberwolfach workshops in
Applied Dynamics and Geometric Mechanics organized by the two of them. When Klaus retired from committee work in 1996, Juergen Scheurle (Technical University of Munich) replaced him. Jerry retired from his role on the committee in 2008 and Anthony Bloch (University of Michigan) and Tudor Ratiu (EPFL) joined Juergen Scheurle to continue the work as organizers.

Jerry passed away on September 21, 2010 and Klaus on July 09, 2011. At the start of the workshop at Oberwolfach in August 2011, a minute of silence was observed in memory of the two founders of this series of workshops.
