The main topic of the workshop is research pertaining to computations with
polynomials having approximate coefficients.  Those wishing to make an oral
presentation at the workshop must also contribute a corresponding written
article: these may be either original research or in the form of a
tutorial/survey.  All submissions will undergo the usual academic
refereeing process.  Accepted articles will be published in the proceedings

In 2006 the Radon Institute of Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM)
of the Austrian Academy of Science and the Research Institute for Symbolic
Computation (RISC) of the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria
organized a "Special Semester on Groebner Bases and Related Methods"
designed and directed by Professor Bruno Buchberger, the inventor of
Groebner basis theory and method.  The special semester consisted mainly of
a series of workshops on various aspects of the theory of Groebner bases
and on important applications of the method.

As part of this series, Prof. L. Robbiano conducted the Workshop B1
entitled "Approximate Commutative Algebra" (during 20-24th Feb 2006).
