Mathematical Society Durham Symposium
|Mathematical Aspects of Graphical Models
|Monday 30th June - Thursday 10th July 2008
began in 1974, and form an established series of
international research meetings, with over 80 symposia to date. They
provide an excellent opportunity to explore an area of research in
depth, to learn of new developments, and to instigate links between
different branches. The format is designed to allow substantial time
for interaction and research. The meetings are held in July and August, usually
lasting for 10 days, with up to 70 participants, roughly half of whom
will come from the UK. Lectures and seminars take place in the Department of Mathematical Sciences,
University of Durham
