 This volume presents the proceedings of the Joint Summer Research Conference on \(q\)series, combinatorics, and computer algebra held at Mount Holyoke College (South Hadley, MA). All of the papers were contributed by participants and offer original research on topics of current interest. Articles in the book reflect the diversity of areas that overlap with \(q\)series, as well as the usefulness of \(q\)series across the mathematical sciences. The conference was held in honor of Richard Askey on the occasion of his 65th birthday and the proceedings contain an article about Askey's contributions to special functions. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in combinatorics. Table of Contents  G. Gasper, M. E.H. Ismail, T. Koornwinder, P. Nevai, and D.
