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.


In early summer 2020 we held a series of weekly eNBSAN seminars on Zoom. These have now finished for the summer, but we expect to hold more online activities in September 2020: watch this space or email Mark Kambites to be added to the NBSAN mailing list.

Future Meetings

There are currently no physical meetings scheduled, due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation. Meetings will resume as soon as possible. We expect that there will be further eNBSAN activities (see above) in September 2020; these will be announced here and to the mailing list nearer the time.
