The conference ‘Interesting Algebraic Varieties Arising in Algebraic Transformation Groups Theory’ was held in the E. Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics in Vienna in October 2001. The book contains the proceedings of the meeting. The complete list of talks given at the conference shows that several lectures do not have a written counterpart in the proceedings. Among 11 contributions the reader can find a long paper by J. M. Landsberg and L. Manivel on representation theory and projective geometry, two papers by C. Ciliberto and V. Di Gennaro and papers written by C. De Concini, J.-M. Hwang and N. Mok, D. Krashen and D. J. Saltman, S. Mukai, V. L. Popov, E.A.Tevelev, D.Snow and F. L. Zak.
