We will consider noncommutative quadratic algebras, nonassociative algebras, and more general structures appeared in various applications, in particular in physics, analysis, geometry, topology, homotopy theory, and coding theory.

Topics of our attention include, but are not limited to the following:

  * Algebras given by relations including quadratic and potential algebras, and generalizations, such as operads, and A-infinity structures;

  * Combinatorics of defining relations, particularly combinatorics and dynamics of words; semigroups and      semigroup algebras;

  * Properties of various generating series associated to rings, Hilbert series, growth, combinatorics of primes;

  * Homological properties, properties of the Koszul and other complexes;

  * Sklyanin algebras and generalizations ;

  * Representation spaces, moduli spaces; deformation theory;

  * Structures related to operads featured in  physics, geometry, topology, homotopy theory

  * Novikov structures and pre-Lie algebras, Leibnitz algebras, other non-associative structures;

  * Poisson structures and symplrectic structures;

  * Yang-Baxter equations and braces, connections to other structures;

  * Computational aspects of the above, in particular, related to the Groebner bases theory
