This Workshop is the latest edition of a series organized periodically and jointly with the collegues from Genova and Milano since 2008. Previous editions took place in Torino (September 2008, April 2010, June 2012), Genova (March 2009, February 2011, March 2013) and Milano (November 2009 and 2011, January 2014).

These Workshops are intended to give both an overview on some recent results on Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry, and the opportunity to researchers working on similar topics to compare recent results and techniques. The outcome is to strengthen past and present collaborations, to give young researchers the opportunity to present their results, and to meet leading researchers in the aforementioned topics that are visiting at a Mathematical Department of a University in one of the three cities, or invited for the event. Similar joint seminars are well consolidated events in the international mathematical world.
