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, 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. For recent activities please see the archive page. To be informed about future activities, please watch this space or contact the central coordinator and ask to join the mailing list.
There are currently no physical meetings scheduled, due to uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation. Meetings will resume as soon as possible, and in the meantime there are eNBSAN activities (see above).
To receive announcements about future meetings, please email Mark Kambites and request to be added to the NBSAN mailing list.
For the archive of information about past meetings look here.
Other (non-NBSAN) Events and Semigroup News
- The University of Manchester is currently advertising a 3-year fellowship in mathematics, aimed at recent (with allowance for career breaks where appropriate) PhDs. The deadline is 6th May 2021. Semigroup theorists interested in applying should feel free to contact Mark Kambites to discuss informally.
