The representation theory of the symmetric groups is a classical subject with its roots in the work of Schur and Young from the end of the 19th century. It is steeped in a rich and beautiful algebraic combinatorics, with close links to alternating groups and diagram algebras. It is also closely tied to the geometric representation theory of algebraic groups, Lie groups, Iwahori–Hecke algebras and Schur algebras. Recent exciting advances with KLR algebras show that the symmetric groups categorify the integral highest weight representations of Kac–Moody algebras and their crystal theory. This volume aims to showcase the rich and varied aspects of this theory.

How to Submit an Article to the Issue.

Both original research articles and review papers will be considered (not published or considered for publication elsewhere).

There is no limit to the length of an article. Deadline for paper submission is August 31, 2018.

All articles will go through the standard peer reviewing procedure of SIGMA.

If you have your paper ready earlier than the deadline, we encourage you to send it now. The reviewing process starts once the paper is submitted and we will publish the paper as soon as the positive publication decision is made. The paper will be indexed in the relevant databases as soon as it is published without waiting for completion of the special issue.
