The goal of this Conference is to present recent progress and new trends in the area of 
commutative ring theory and module theory. It also aims to gather together mathematicians sharing similar algebraic interests for a fruitful interaction.

The main subjects includes:
  • Spaces of valuation domains and applications;
  • Multiplicative Ideal Theory, lattices, star and semistar operations; 
  • Factorization and divisibility properties in the ideal theory of commutative rings;
  • Rings of integer-valued polynomials;
  • Topological and algebraic entropy over commutative rings;
  • Almost t-injective and fully inert modules over integral domains;

Invited speakers:

Jean-Luc Chabert (U. de Picardie Jules Verne, FRA)  
Marco D'Anna (U. Catania, ITA)
Carmelo Antonio Finocchiaro (Technische U. Graz, AUT
Sophie Frisch (Technische U. Graz, AUT)
Alfred Geroldinger (U. Graz, AUT)  
Anna Giordano Bruno (U. Udine, ITA)  
Tom Lucas (U. North Carolina Charlotte, USA
Mi Hee Park (Chung-Ang U., KOR)  
Luigi  Salce (U. Padova, ITA)  

Young researchers interested in these areas are welcome.
