Impromptu combinatorics workshop

Theme: Group actions on graphs

We'll be holding an impromptu mini-workshop on Saturday Nov 10, 2012. The workshop will be loosely organized around the theme of "group actions on graphs", but will also stray to wider areas of combinatorics (particularly algebraic combinatorics) and/or group theory.

The workshop in part marks the occasion of the visit of Dragan Marušič, Štefko Miklavic, Aleksander Malnič, and Klavdija Kutnar from the University of Primorska, Slovenia.
