January 26 - 28, 2018
DescriptionThis meeting is a continuation of previous annual workshops focusing on the interplay between commutative algebra (e.g., resolutions and inverse systems) and algebraic combinatorics (e.g.,the representation theory of symmetric groups). Links to the previous workshops can be found here .
