The workshop on Algebraic Methods in Combinatorics will take place **November 13-17, 2017 **at the **Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications**, located at 20 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA.

The main focus of the workshop is the application of algebraic method to study problems in combinatorics. In recent years there has been a large number of results in which the use of algebraic technique has resulted in significant improvements to long standing open problems. Such problems include the finite field Kakeya problem, the distinct distance problem of Erdos and, more recently, the cap-set problem. The workshop will include talks on all of the above mentioned problem as well as on recent development in related areas combining combinatorics and algebra.
