 Time Speaker Title
 13:30-14:30  Tom Coleman (St Andrews)  Automorphisms of MB-homogeneous graphs.

There will be a dinner at 18:15 at a restaurant in town.

Funding: We expect to be able to pay reasonable travel costs for all participants (depending on numbers).  If more people come than expected, priority will be given to postgraduate students and those without other sources of funding.

Registration: There is no formal registration.  If you plan to attend, we’d be grateful if you would email Colva Roney-Dougal by the end of Tuesday 8 May, to give us an idea of numbers.  Please give a rough estimate of your travel costs if you would like to be reimbursed, and let us know whether you want to go to the dinner (and what your dietary restrictions are, if any).
