The discussion was focused on some of the broader areas addressed in the talks and the following areas of current and future work were discussed. Contributors are identified in parentheses.

__Finite Frame Theory:__

- The Paulsen Problem: If a frame is close to being unit-norm and close to being tight, is it close to being a unit-norm, tight frame? (Matthew Fickus) Are perturbations of equal-norm tight frames close to other equal-norm tight frames? (Pete Casazza)
- Construction of equi-angular (real or complex) tight frames. Examples are known for certain dimensions, but there is a significant amount unknown in this area. (Pete Casazza, Matthew Fickus, and Ilya Krishtal)
- Classification of Parseval frames: When is it possible to partition equal-norm tight frames into pieces that possess a given useful property? (Pete Casazza)
- Measuring redundancy of frames. (Pete Casazza)
- Development of algorithmic constructions of Parseval frames. (Pete Casazza)

- Can one describe useful weighted fusion frames that generate a given frame? (Ilya Krishtal)
- Related to work of Donoho regarding the preservation of the variance of noise under certain transformations. Can [tight]-frames be defined so that the frame operator nearly preserves the variance of noise? More focus should be placed on statistics in the context of frames. (Charles Chui) There is a related paper by M. Elad in the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory discussing thresholding with frames. (Minh Do)
- Continuation of extension results for frames (e.g., Parseval frames are projections of orthonormal bases). When do such superframes preserve the [group] structure of the original frame? (Azita Mayeli)

- Let $P$ localize to $\Sigma$ in frequency and $Q$ localize to an interval of length $T$ in time. If
$\Sigma$ = \argmax_{\vert \Sigma\vert = 1} \Vert P_{\Sigma} Q_{T} \Vert then $\Sigma$ must be an interval provided that $T<0.8$. Is this true for all $T$? What is the optimal shape of such sets in higher dimensions? (Joe Lakey)

- On the existence of compactly supported composite wavelet functions: What middle ground exists between the results of Houska and Lim? (Edward Wilson)
- Is there a version of Cohen's Criterion for multiple scaling functions? (Ilya Krishtal)
