The Venue


FPSAC 2017 will take place on the Mile End Campus of Queen Mary, University of London. The Mile End campus is historically the home of Queen Mary College, which began life in 1887 as the People's Palace, a philanthropic endeavour to provide east Londoners with education and social activities. It was admitted to the University of London in 1915.

The Mile End Campus is located in the Borough of Tower Hamlets between The City and Canary Wharf, a multicultural and socially diverse area that is one of the most rapidly developing parts of London. Queen Mary is the London research-focused university closest to the site of the 2012 Olympic Games, only two miles from the Mile End Campus.


The conference will take place in the 304-seater Arts Two Lecture Theatre. 
The Welcome Reception and Poster Sessions will be in the Octagon, as will be the Conference Dinner.


The School of Mathematical Sciences is one of the largest UK mathematical science departments. The university has recently invested in a new foyer and entrance area for the Mathematical Sciences Building, with a Penrose tiling pattern wrapped around the outside of the building.
The School has a long tradition in combinatorics, and contains one of the strongest Combinatorics Groups in the UK. The Algebra Group at QMUL also has a long and distinguished history, going back to such names as Kurt Hirsch, Karl Gruenberg and Ian G. Macdonald.
Ian G Mcdonald was a professor at Queen Mary College from 1976.
