This meeting will be a continuation of the successful workshops held in
Kingston in 2004, and in Ottawa in 2005. The main achievement of the past
events has been that they have established an on-going dialog between
two separate research communities who had been using similar techniques
to study different mathematical problems. The two groups are algebraic
combinatorialists working on the representation theory of symmetric groups,
and commutative algebraists studying resolutions and inverse systems.
The connections between these topics were highlighted in a successful
meeting that took place in January 2004 at Queen's University in Kingston.
In this meeting, through a series of expository lectures by Tony Geramita
and François Bergeron, among others, it was made evident that
interesting special cases of the notion of Macaulay's inverse systems
of Commutative Algebra are essentially the same objects as coinvariants
spaces studied in Algebraic Combinatorics and Representation Theory.
This year's meeting will continue in the same tradition. The main speakers
