April 24-28, 2013              Northeastern University, Boston, MA


The conference "Algebra, Combinatorics and Representation Theory" was held on the campus of Northeastern University in Boston on April 24-28th. The conference was a celebration of the work of Andrei Zelevinsky, covering the numerous areas where he has made contributions in his mathematical life, including combinatorics, commutative algebra, representation theory, and algebraic geometry. Sadly, Andrei passed away on April 10, 2013. Information about Andrei's passing and funeral arrangments was posted by his family here. A much longer obituary has been published in Transformation Groups.

The conference was supported by funding from the Math Department and College of Science of Northeastern and by a conference grant from the NSF.
