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. **
