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, 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 meeting will take place in Manchester on Friday 14th April 2023, organised by Mark Kambites and Nóra Szakács. Confirmed speakers include Ruy Exel, Islam Foniqi, Victoria Gould and Xin Li (with more to follow).
The meeting is provisionally expected to run from 11:00 to 17:00, followed by an early dinner. All talks will take place in Frank Adams Room 1 in the Alan Turing Building, which is about 20 minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Oxford Road railway stations. Here is some information for visitors.
Limited funding is available to contribute to the attendance costs of UK-based graduate students. If you are interested, please contact Mark in advance with an estimate of your expenses.
Further details, including talk titles and a full schedule, will appear here shortly. In the meantime please contact Nóra with any queries.
The second meeting of the 2022-23 academic year will be held in Norwich on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th June 2023, organised by Robert Gray.
