A workshop and meeting on contemporary aspects of Mathematical Physics will be held at Gregynog Hall from 22 to 25 November 2002.  The speakers will include Vaughan Jones (Berkeley) and John Lewis (Dublin) on the Monday afternoon, 25 November, as part of a regional meeting.  The chairman of that meeting will be the new president of the Society,  Peter Goddard (Cambridge).

The workshop speakers preceding the regional meeting will include: Sir Michael Berry (Bristol), Alan Carey (Canberra), Tony Dorlas (Dublin), Masatoshi Fukushima (Osaka), Gary Gibbons (Cambridge), Uffe Haagerup (Odense), Lou Kauffman (Chicago), Gus Lehrer (Sydney), Terry Lyons (Oxford), Tetsuji Miwa (Kyoto), Werner Nahm (Dublin), Leonid Pastur (Paris), John Roberts (Rome), Constantin Teleman (Cambridge), Vladimir Turaev (Strasbourg), Wendelin Werner (Paris) and Jean-Bernard Zuber (Saclay).

Part of the workshop will celebrate the 87th birthday of Emeritus Professor Neville Temperley and his contributions to Mathematical Physics.  Professor Temperley was head of the Applied Mathematics Department at Swansea for 17 years until his retirement in 1982.  He received the Rumford Medal from the Royal Society in 1992.

The workshop will start around 11.30 on the morning of Friday 22 November and end with Vaughan Jones 2.00-3.00 and John Lewis 3.15-4.15 on the afternoon of Monday 25 November.  We intend that participants will stay at Gregynog Hall for c. £49.50 per night including meals, c. £19.80 for students.  The conference dinner will be on the Sunday evening, 24 November.  The extra cost for this will be c. £10 for those staying at Gregynog and c. £22.50 for those staying elsewhere.  There will be a concert by Elinor Bennett on the Sunday evening. If Gregynog becomes full, we expect that accommodation will be available in Newtown, which is about five miles from Gregynog.  It will be possible for members of the Society to apply for help with their travel costs to attend the Society meeting on 25 November.

There will be the possibility of submitting short talks and posters.  We welcome posters from graduate students and hope to award a prize to the best poster submitted by a student.
