North British Semigroups and Applications Network
NBSAN is a network of researchers in Scotland and Northern England with interests in semigroup theory and its applications. It is funded chiefly by a grant from the London Mathematical Society, with additional contributions from host departments and occasionally from other sources. It holds two meetings per year in different locations around the region, plus occasional online activities. The main participant universities are East Anglia, Heriot Watt, Manchester, St Andrews and York, but our activities are open to all interested researchers. Attendance at all meetings is free. We especially welcome graduate students.
To enquire about the network, or to join the mailing list, please contact the central coordinator Mark Kambites. For enquiries about individual meetings, please contact the relevant local organiser as described below.
Next MeetingThe next NBSAN meeting will be held in York on Friday 24th June 2022, in conjunction with a workshop on Topics in Geometric Semigroup Theory taking place from Monday to Thursday of the same week. Please note that the NBSAN meeting is in-person only (while the workshop is also online). The meetings are independent, so those unable to attend both are welcome to participate in either one of them.
Speakers at the NBSAN meeting will include Fabienne Chouraqui, Marianne Johnson, Stuart Margolis, Xavier Mary, Carl-Fredrik Nyberg Brodda, Tom Quinn-Gregson and Itamar Stein.The meeting will start at 10:00 and finish at 5:30, with a light meal and drinks served afterward at 18:00. Some information for visitors to the university can be found here.
No further meetings are scheduled at present. To receive announcements about future meetings, please email Mark Kambites and request to be added to the NBSAN mailing list.
