A workshop on Algebraic, Topological and Complexity Aspects of Graph Covers will be held in Durham from Monday 9 January to Friday 13 January 2017. The workshop’s main focus is on graph coverings and their applications in different areas of theoretical computer science and mathematics such as models of computation, computational complexity, and algebraic graph theory. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers working on these diverse aspects of graph coverings, and to provide an opportunity for them to introduce their approaches and results to one another and to try to pursue joint research. We plan a small number of survey talks, several open problem sessions, and ample time for discussions and problem solving.

Durham is easy to reach by train or air. There are frequent train services to London (about 3 hours) and Edinburgh (about 2 hours). There are two international airports (Newcastle and Durham Tees Valley) with good connections to Durham. They offer cheap flight services to several destinations.

Here is further information on travelling to Durham, and a map for finding your way in the city.
