 This volume contains the proceedings of the NSFCBMS Regional Conference on Algebraic Geometry, held in Sundance, Utah, in July 1988. The conference focused on algebraic curves and related varieties. Some of the papers collected here represent lectures delivered at the conference, some report on research done during the conference, while others describe related work carried out elsewhere.
