 The articles in this volume are the outcome of the Impanga Conference on Algebraic Geometry in 2010 at the Banach Center in Bedlewo. The following spectrum of topics is covered:  K3 surfaces and Enriques surfaces
 Prym varieties and their moduli
 invariants of singularities in birational geometry
 differential forms on singular spaces
 Minimal Model Program
 linear systems
 toric varieties
 Seshadri and packing constants
 equivariant cohomology
 Thom polynomials
 arithmetic questions
The main purpose of the volume is to give comprehensive introductions to the above topics, starting from an elementary level and ending with a discussion of current research. The first four topics are represented by the notes from the mini courses held during the conference. In the articles, the reader will find classical results and methods, as well as modern ones. This book is addressed to researchers and graduate students in algebraic geometry, singularity theory, and algebraic topology. Most of the material in this volume has not yet appeared in book form. A publication of the European Mathematical Society (EMS). Distributed within the Americas by the American Mathematical Society.
