Queries should be sent to Rebecca Lumb (r.c.lumb@lse.ac.uk).

Those interested are welcome to attend for all or any part of the event. The two hosting institutions are less than half an hour apart by tube; it is hoped that many people will be able to attend for both days.There is no formal registration process and seats will be allocated each day on a first come, first served basis.


Some funds are available to contribute to the basic, sensible travel expenses of UK-based research students who wish to attend the meetings (unfortunately, the terms of our funding do not cover students from overseas).  We would ask you to keep costs to a minimum, using public transport booked in advance on all occasions and off-peak student travel tariffs wherever possible.  Receipts for all journeys must be maintained as proof of travel.  At this stage, we are unable to confirm the maximum amount available; once the event has taken place we will reimburse UK-based student expenses, wherever possible, on a case-by-case basis.  Official expense claim forms will be available to collect at the event.  Please contact Rebecca Lumb for further information.

There are also some funds available from the London Mathematical Society for help with childcare costs. Further details can be found at http://www.lms.ac.uk/content/childcare-supplementary-grants.

Event Support

Support for this event by the London Mathematical Society and the British Combinatorial Committee is gratefully acknowledged by the organisers.

Event History

This 2014 event continues the tradition of holding a combinatorics Colloquium in May; since 2007, Queen Mary and LSE have held back-to-back one day meetings and details of all past Colloquia can be found as follows:
