A quick advertisement. The Postgraduate Combinatorics Conference will be held at Royal Holloway, University of London, 14-16 August this year. The webpage is here. Registration closes soon.
Why should you go? It’s a small friendly conference; the people you meet there will be other postgraduate students facing similar problems to yours, and you can give a talk to a friendly and unthreatening audience.
And it is a very beautiful campus! (I am there this week.)
