This workshop will be devoted to recent
developments in representation stability. Among these developments are results
on algebraic and combinatorial aspects of functor categories and stable
representation categories, and the use of "large" algebraic structures on limit
objects to obtain finiteness results. A key goal will be to foster an exchange
of ideas between the algebraic, topological, and combinatorial sides of the
The main topics for the workshop are:
- stabilization phenomena in combinatorial representation theory
- applications to and generalizations of homological stability
- finiteness and boundedness in algebro-geometric problems related to tensors
and families of highly symmetric varieties
