To understand two basic nonperturbative features of Quantum Chromodynamics -- confinement and chiral symmetry breaking -- remains a challenge, in spite of decades of investigations and detailed numerical simulations on the lattice. Topological solitons -- instantons and their constituents, magnetic monopoles, vortices, QCD flux tubes -- are all identified on the lattice and are related to these phenomena, especially near and below the critical temperature $T_c$. During the last several years this field has again been a field of quite active research. Coming ECT* workshop in November 2016 is considered a sequel to the topology workshop at Simons Center for Geometry  and Physics, Stony Brook, August 2015, which was very successful, see
