**Presentation**

At the CMS Winter Meeting 2004 in Montreal there will be a special session in Algebraic Combinatorics. Topics include all aspects of algebraic combinatorics and their relations with other parts of mathematics. One particular focus will be on recent work concerning relations among symmetric functions. |
