Shpectorov (Bowling Green State
University) I will be presenting a series of lectures
related to simple group recognition. See here.
I was the organizer for the regional meeting of the London Mathematical
Society. The next meeting will be in Birmingham in May 2005.
The topic of
the workshop following the meeting will be
Theory and Groups.
