The Workshop is organized by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. The purpose of this event is to present the current state of the art in group theory and ring theory and their applications. In particular, we expect to emphasize on combinatorial group theory, finite simple groups, combinatorial and computational ring theory, noncommutative ring theory and theory of PI-algebras, commutative and noncommutative invariant theory, automorphisms of polynomial and other free algebras, representation theory of groups, Lie algebras and Lie superalgebras. The applications are oriented but not limited to scientific computations, coding theory, cryptography, statistics, wireless communications.
The Workshop will include invited main talks and ordinary research talks. The time for the presentation of main talks is 45 minutes and the time for the ordinary talks is 45-30 minutes, including questions.
