Conference Proceedings

    We will publish conference proceedings (jointly with the meeting on integer-valued polynomials at the CIRM in Dec. 2020) with Springer, in the same format and series as the proceedings of the conference in Graz 2016.

    The proceedings volume will be dedicated to the memory of Paul-Jean Cahen.

    Conference participants are encouraged to submit original research papers (about 15-20 pages long, as a guideline) on topics within the scope of the conference. Some survey articles on selected topics of importance may also be published (details to be discussed at the conference).

    The submitted articles will be refereed to the standards of a respectable algebra journal.

    Conference participants planning to submit a paper to the proceedings are asked to declare their intention to the organizers at the conference and to submit their papers by November 30, 2020.

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.
