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 2-3 meetings per year in different locations around the region (in normal times), 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.
eNBSANDue to the COVID-19 situation, we have been organising various online seminars and lectures for the worldwide semigroup community, but we have paused these in the hope of resuming physical meetings shortly. See the archive page for recent activities.
There are currently no physical meetings scheduled, due to uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation, but we hope to resume meetings in the academic year 2021-22.
To receive announcements about future meetings, please email Mark Kambites and request to be added to the NBSAN mailing list.
