Group theory is a fundamental and highly active field of research within the mathematical sciences and has ramifications throughout all of mathematics and the sciences. There are large communities of group theory researchers in all continents, and they keep in touch through international meetings and conferences. However, local conditions and cultural circumstances under which mathematical research is done differ quite a bit between different regions of the world. The focus of this conference is on research in group theory in the USA and in China. One major goal of the conference is to establish and strengthen ties between group theorists in China and the US. It is the first conference in group theory with this focus.

The speakers from both countries will cover a large variety of the subjects in the area, which include representations of solvable groups, representations of simple groups, character theory, classes of groups, groups and combinatorics, recognizing simple groups from group invariants, p-groups, and fusion systems.

We will have 14 invited talks and a limited number of contributed talks. If you are interested in giving a 20-minute presentation at the conference, please indicate so on the registration form, where you can also submit an abstract and title of your proposed talk. The organizers will inform you in due course whether your presentation has been accepted for the conference.

Conference is supported by NSF and Texas State University. The NSF funding will be used to support travel and accommodation of participants who have limited travel funds from their institutions, particularly students. If you are interested in financial support, please indicate so in the corresponding spot on the registration form and provide a brief explanation.
