*Title:* **Group Theory: Finite to Infinite.**
The first meeting of the European Research
Conference series
``Algebra and Discrete Mathematics''
(Dedicated to the memory of Brian Hartley)
*Topic:* Much of the liveliest work in group theory
today involves, in some way,
the interplay of finite and infinite aspects.
Two particular themes
are finiteness conditions and growth rates.
Techniques
from many parts of mathematics are used,
and group theory
repays its debt with a number of applications.
The main topic areas will be: locally finite groups;
profinite and residually finite groups;
asymptotic group theory;
combinatorial and geometric group theory;
groups and model theory.
