The program included about 10 - 15 one-hour
lectures, about 10 half-hour talks and a number of shorter
communications on various aspects of algebras with polynomial
identities, with an emphasis on combinatorial methods in PI-theory.
This workshop is a continuation of the series of
conferences/workshops held in Palermo, Italy (1992), Trento, Italy
(1997), Rehovot, Israel (2000), and Pantelleria, Italy (2001). The
