From July 29th to August 2nd the School of Mathematics will host the 27th British Combinatorial Conference. This biennial meeting covers research in all areas of Combinatorics and its applications. The conference series has been running since 1969 and is the focal event in the UK Combinatorics calendar.

Nine world-experts in their fields will give plenary talks at the conference. There are also invited mini-symposia concerning six important branches of Combinatorics. All participants are encouraged to submit an abstract on a topic related to the conference and give a 20-minute presentation.

The 27th BCC is being organised by four members of the School of Mathematics; Allan Lo, Richard Mycroft, Guillem Perarnau and Andrew Treglown. The conference is also organised in partnership with the Clay Mathematics Institute, the Heilbronn Institute, Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications and the London Mathematical Society.

More details about the event can be found on the conference webpage.
