Andrew Chamblin Memorial Conference

Saturday, October 14, 2006

Trinity College, Cambridge

A one day meeting to commemorate the scientific work of Andrew Chamblin was held in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre at Trinity College, Cambridge, followed by a banquet in the College.


Format

The conference aimed to bring together as many of Andrew's collaborators and colleagues as possible. There were only a few invited talks, to leave lots of time for informal discussion.
