Abstract: Quiver Hecke algebras were recently defined by Khovanov-Lauda
and, independently, by Rouquier. The importance of these algebras
is that the category of graded modules for the quiver Hecke algebras is a
categorfication of the Drinfeld-Jimbo quantum group. I will give a survey
of this exciting new subject, perhaps highlighting some of our recent results
joint with Kleshchev.
