Two One-Day Colloquia in Combinatorics| - 13 & 14 May 2015
The 2015 Colloquia in Combinatorics will take place on 13-14 May, jointly hosted by the LSE Mathematics Department and Queen Mary, University of London. Further details can be found here|; this page will be updated as planning progesses.  This event is free and open to all with no ticket or pre-registration required.  Entry is on a first come, first served basis. 
Organisers: Jozef Skokan| (LSE), Robert Johnson (QMUL) and David Ellis (QMUL)

Public lecture:  A Beautiful Question: finding nature's deep design| - 8 July 2015 - 18.30 - Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE
World-class physicist and Nobel laureate Professor Frank Wilczek| (MIT) will discuss his new book, "A Beautiful Question|", which argues that beauty is at the heart of the logic of the universe, a principle that had guided his pioneering work in quantum physics. A Beautiful Question is the culmination of Wilczek's life work, a work that looks to combine the age-old quest for beauty with the age-old quest for truth. The press release can be read here|.

This event will be chaired by Professor Bernhard von Stengel|.  This event is free and open to all with no ticket or pre-registration required.  Entry is on a first come, first served basis.  More information is available here|.
