To each commutative ring R one can associate the graph G(R), called the intersection graph of ideals, whose vertices are nontrivial ideals of R. In this paper, we try to establish some connections between commutative ring theory and graph theory, by study of the genus of the intersection graph of ideals. We classify all graphs of genus 2 that are intersection graphs of ideals of some commutative rings and obtain some lower bounds for the genus of the intersection graph of ideals of a nonlocal commutative ring.
