From Permutation Groups to Model Theory: a Workshop Inspired by the Interests of Dugald Macpherson, on the Occasion of his 60th Birthday

 17 - 21 Sep 2018
 ICMS

Scientific Organisers:

  • Sylvy Anscombe, University of Central Lancashire   

  • Andres Aranda Lopez, TU Dresden  

  • David Bradley-Williams, University of Dusseldorf  

  • Deirdre Haskell, McMaster University
