This conference at the Institute of Analysis and Number Theory of Technische Universität Graz (TU Graz), July 20-25, 2020, continues the series of ring-theory conferences that have been held alternatingly at the two math departments in Graz since 2012 - at TU in 2012, at KFU in 2014, at TU in 2016, and at KFU in 2018. We hope to see the participants of the previous events again in Graz 2020, as well as many new participants.
