Proceedings of the conference on commutative rings, integer-valued polynomials and polynomial functions in Graz, Austria, Dec. 19-22, 2012

Proceedings entitled "Commutative rings, integer-valued polynomials, and polynomial functions" edited by Marco Fontana, Sarah Glaz and Sophie Frisch, will be published by Springer.

All contributed papers must be written in LaTeX, preferrably using Springer's style files for "edited volumes". If you cannot get to grips with Springer's style files, you may use LaTeX "article" style. The deadline for submitting the papers, originally May 15, 2013, has been extended to Sept. 2013. Contact the editors for details.

The main speakers of the conference and lecturers of the mini-courses have already engaged to write introductory survey articles on the topics of the mini-courses and related current topics in commutative ring theory, integer-valued polynomials and polynomial functions.

Conference participants are encouraged to contribute research papers or survey papers on the topics of the conference. The research articles should not exced 15 pages; the survey articles should not exceed 20 pages. All articles will be refereed to high standards.

Conference participants planning to contribute a paper to the proceedings should communicate their intention, and the proposed title and topic of the planned paper, to Marco Fontana, Sophie Frisch or Sarah Glaz as soon as possible.
