These proceedings present for the first time a complete survey of the current research in
this large field. In correspondence to the thematic architecture of the conference the papers
are built around lattice ordered groups as the central pillar of strength. Other sections
forming also integral parts of the whole concept are: a section on vector lattices and function
algebras as a link to functional analysis, a section on real algebraic geometry, and one on
ordered semigroups, semirings and related structures.
