8-12 July 2019
There are a number of deep and fruitful connections between combinatorics on one side and limits of discrete structures, descriptive set theory, orbit equivalence, measured group theory and ergodic theory on the other side. The aim of this exploratory workshop is to overview such known interactions and identify new promising directions.
All talks are in MS.01.
If you are around on Sunday or Friday evening: we suggest to meet at Varsity from around 6pm.
Some ideas for Wednesday afternoon:
- hiking trip to Kenilworth, with a possible visit to the Kenilworth Castle (starting at 1:30pm sharp from the entrance to the Mathematics institute)
- working (NB: tea is served in the common room 3-4pm)
- doing Sculpture Trail on the campus
- enjoying everything
Workshop dinner: 7pm in Radcliffe (its entrance is from the large parking lot, off Scarman road)
- Ágnes Backhausz (Eötvös Loránd University)
- Vitaly Bergelson (Ohio State University)

The registration fee is £125 (including lunches Mon-Fri, and dinners Mon-Thurs) or £50 (including lunches only). It is waived for invited speakers, Warwick participants, and mathematicians who are retired or are on a career break. Please register here and, if you have to pay the fee, call Alison Humphries at +44-2476522681 to pay by a card, with 6 June 2019 being the deadline for both.
The registration is closed now.
If you are interested in booking accommodation on the campus, please contact call Alison Humphries as early as possible (as hotels on the campus are usually in very high demand that time of year). Alternatively, you can book accommodation yourself (with Coventry, Kenilworth, and Leamington Spa being the most convenient towns for getting to the campus by public transport).
Thanks to an LMS grant, we have some funding for
- research students (of any nationality) that study in the UK, and
- one participant currently holding a full-time academic position at any country listed here.
In order to apply, please email your CV and up to 3 of your best papers to Oleg Pikhurko by 1 April 2019. If you do not have any preprints, then instead please arrange that one recommendation letter (e.g. by your PhD advisor) is emailed directly to Oleg Pikhurko by 1 April 2019. Funding decisions will be made shortly after the deadline.
All talks, coffee breaks and lunches will be in the Zeeman Building that hosts Warwick's Mathematics Institute. Directions to the Institute can be found here.
Where possible, visitors should obtain an EDUROAM account from their own university to enable internet access whilst at Warwick.
You can register for any of the symposia or workshops online. To see which registrations are currently open and to submit a registration, please click here.
