 This book contains proceedings of the research conference on algebraic \(K\)theory that took place in Poznań, Poland, in September 1995. The conference concluded the activity of the algebraic \(K\)theory seminar held at the Adam Mickiewicz University in the academic year 19941995. Talks at the conference covered a wide range of current research activities in algebraic \(K\)theory. In particular, the following topics were covered:  \(K\)theory of fields and rings of integers.
 \(K\)theory of elliptic and modular curves.
 Theory of motives, motivic cohomology, Beilinson conjectures.
 Algebraic \(K\)theory of topological spaces, topological Hochschild homology and cyclic homology.
With contributions by some leading experts in the field, this book provides a look at the state of current research in algebraic \(K\)theory.
