Dear GAP Forum,
The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Computational Algebra
(CIRCA) at the University of St Andrews will be holding an
instructional workshop in Computational Algebra from September 1st to
5th 2003.**NEW** Invited Speakers
Three Speakers will give courses of three or four lectures each,
supported by hands-on practical sessions:
George Havas (University of Queensland)
Some computations with finitely presented groups.
Gerhard Hiss (RWTH Aachen)
Representation Theory In and With GAP.
Alice Niemeyer (University of Western Australia)
Aspects of algorithms for recognising Symmetric and Alternating Groups
The workshop will feature
* short courses as above and individual lectures by other
* an introduction to GAP and plenty of opportunities to try it out
in the labs, and
* opportunities to describe your own research interests and discuss
them with others.
Meals and accommodation will be provided in student residences.
The workshop will be aimed primarily at UK graduate students and
research staff, although all are welcome. Thanks to generous support
from NETCA the EPSRC funded Research Network in Computer Algebra,
we expect to be able to offer support with travel and/or accommodation
to any UK participants who need it.
Registration: will be available as soon as possible. The conference
fee will be £20 per person until 1 June, £25 thereafter.
If you might be interested in taking part, and would like to receive
further information about the workshop, please send email to
