The Banff International Research Station will host the "New Trends in Syzygies" workshop from June 24th to June 29th, 2018.

Free resolutions and syzygies are algebraic objects used throughout algebraic geometry, combinatorics, mathematical physics, topology and algebra. Recently several long-standing open problems on free resolutions have been settled, such as the Eisenbud-Goto Conjecture, Stillman's Problem, and the Boij-S\"oderberg Conjectures, but other important questions remain. This workshop brings together world experts in the various problems on syzygies to identify and attack some of the outstanding problems of this field.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
