The meeting features a series of lectures by Neil Strickland (Cambridge) on subjects related to his preprint ``Functorial Philosophy for Formal Phenomena'', available from the Hopf archive, including The Big Picture, and applications.
Each lecture will take place in Room J11 of the Hicks Building, Hounsfield Road, Sheffield; Tea and Coffee will be served in the common room I15.
From the rail station you can catch the number 60 bus, and get off where it crosses the ring road. Or take the supertram to the University stop.
Rooms can be booked at The Rutland Hotel (0114) 266 4411, but do book very soon, as space is limited; mention Sheffield University, and let me (jpcg) know what you have done.
[Warning: I will be out of Sheffield 28/4/96-26/5/96, although my usual email address will continue to work.]
Further details may be obtained from John Greenlees ( or from either of the other organisers John Hunton ( and Nige Ray (

The meeting is partially supported by a Scheme 3 grant from the London Mathematical Society and by the University of Sheffield.
