The volume contains the proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Operator Theory, held in Timişoara from July 2–7, 2012. Leading experts in the field have contributed with several survey papers, covering the following subjects:

- amenability on coset spaces
- large orbits of operators and operator semigroups
- approximation numbers of composition operators
- commutators in the algebra of bounded operators on a Hilbert space
- interplay between algebraic groups, Lie algebras, and operator ideals
- free group factors and Hecke operators

The remaining papers contain original research on different topics: single operator theory, C*-algebras, operators on function spaces, quantum semigroups, moment problems, and semigroups on ordered Banach spaces.
