The Strong Factorial conjecture was recently formulated by Arno van den Essen and Eric Edo. The problem is motivated by several outstanding problems including the Jacobian, Image, and Vanishing conjectures. In this defense, we discuss how the conjecture can be reformulated in terms of systems of integer polynomials and we present several special cases in which the conjecture holds.
