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.

Queries should be sent to Rebecca Lumb|.


Some funds are available to contribute to the basic travel expenses of research students who wish to attend the meetings.  We would ask you to keep costs to a minimum, using public transport 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; 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.
