### Special Issue on “Categorification in Representation Theory”

#### Posted by Alexander Hoffnung

Aaron Lauda, Anthony Licata and Alistair Savage (all of whom we are lucky to have speaking at the AMS meeting at Riverside this Fall) have just announced their Special Issue on “Categorification in Representation Theory” of the International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics.

The official Call for Papers is here.

The topics to be considered are:

*Geometric categorifications, including geometric realizations of crystals, representations of quantum groups, braid group actions, and derived equivalences

*Combinatorial categorifications of quantum groups, Hecke algebras, cluster algebras, and relations between combinatorial constructions and geometric categorifications

*Diagrammatic categorifications, especially diagrammatic interpretations of geometric categorifications

*Categorified link invariants with representation theoretic origins

I am sure there are plenty of people floating around here with nice articles to submit.

In case some of you didn’t notice: Alex Hoffnung is now an official host at the $n$-Café, and this is his first post in that capacity — as opposed to a “guest post”.

Hip, hip, hoorah!
