Preface. On the occasion of the 34th Séminaire Lotharingien de Combinatoire the fifteen schools of the European Network on "Algebraic Combinatorics" have participated in a Rencontre of their network, presented their works and discussed further collaboration. The fifteen schools include Wien (Christian Krattenthaler), Berlin (Günter Ziegler), Magdeburg (Christine Bessenrodt), Copenhagen (Joern Olsson), Bielefeld (Andreas Dress), Strasbourg (Dominique Foata), Stockholm (Anders Björner), Erlangen (Volker Strehl), Bayreuth (Adalbert Kerber), Marne-la-Vallée (Alain Lascoux), Cagliari (Luigi Cerlienco), Bordeaux (Mireille Bousquet-Melou), Aberystwyth (Alun O. Morris) and Perugia (Francesco Brenti).

Each school has discussed its recent results in the area of Algebraic Combinatorics, ranging from the representations of symmetric groups to the geometry of tiling (see the network's table for a rapid view at the common interests). The present volume contains the different contributions of each school.
