Despite of the first study of relativistic extended objects in physics (Dirac, 55 years ago) having been aimed at membranes, and mathematicians (e.g. Eisenhart) having considered higher-dimensional minimal hypersurfaces to be of great interest more than one century ago, progress in this fascinating field has been slow, because of its intrinsic non-linearity and immense complexness. It therefore needs a joint review of the state of the art, as well as communication between leading experts of various aspects of the problem.
