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.
