Extract

The conference Groups–St Andrews 1985 was held at the University of St Andrews from 27 July to 10 August 1985. The conference received financial support from the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, the London Mathematical Society and the British Council. There were 366 participants from 43 countries registered for the conference. Although the conference did not specialize in a particular area of group theory, a glance at Mathematical Reviews shows that the work of the participants is mainly under classifications 20D, 20E and 20F. In part this is because the conference followed an earlier conference [6] which was primarily based on topics falling under 20F.
