FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE CONFERENCE
GROUPS AND SEMIGROUPS: INTERACTIONS AND COMPUTATIONS
25-29 JULY 2011
UNIVERSIDADE DE LISBOA, PORTUGAL

SUMMARY

The aim of this conference is to deepen the existing interactions
between group theory and semigroup theory. The main themes of the
conference include, not exclusively: the application of permutation
group theory in the theory of transformation semigroups; computational
techniques in group theory and semigroup theory; and combinatorial
methods in group theory and semigroup theory.

The conference will be organized by the Centro de Álgebra da
Universidade de Lisboa (CAUL), the Centro Internacional de Matemática
(CIM), and the Departamento de Matemática da Faculdade de Ciências da
Universidade de Lisboa (DM-FCUL).
