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) and holds 2-3 meetings per year in different locations around the region. 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.


We will be holding a series of weekly eNBSAN seminars on Zoom during the summer, hosted by the various NBSAN participant universities. Seminars will take place on Wednesdays at 1pm British Summer Time (12 noon GMT/UTC), starting on 24th June. The schedule so far:

More details will appear here, and be announced to the NBSAN mailing list, nearer the time. For security, the meeting link and password will be circulated only to the mailing list. In the meantime please contact Mark Kambites with any questions or to be added to the mailing list.
