We are pleased to announce that there will be two linked one-day colloquia in combinatorics, honouring the contributions of Norman Biggs to the field, and more generally to Mathematics in the UK. Those interested are welcome to attend for all or any part of the event. Some funds may be available to contribute to the expense of research students who wish to attend the meetings.

The speakers for the LSE meeting, and many of those speaking at Queen Mary, have been associated with Norman in one form or other during the course of his career. Their research interests are varied, and we hope that the talks they give will be of wide interest to all those working in combinatorics or related fields. Details of the programme will appear here in due course.

The two hosting institutions are less than half an hour apart by tube; it is hoped that many people will be able to attend for both days. We will provide links to sites listing a selection of convenient hotels.

There will be a drinks reception following the final talk on Thursday 17th.

Support for this event by the London Mathematical Society and the British Combinatorial Committee is gratefully acknowledged.
