Join us in Newcastle
to celebrate Statistical Mechanics,
Combinatorics and
Tony Guttmann's 70th birthday


All are welcome, but speaking slots are by invitation only.

If you have been invited to speak at Guttmann 2015 please only use the registration form to pay for the conference dinner. If you do not wish to attend the dinner there is no need to do anything; we will register you directly.

If you are attending Guttmann 2015 please consider participating in the Fourth Annual Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Mathematical Physics. The ANZAMP meeting is from 9-11 December, in the same venue; NOAH's On The Beach in Newcastle. All attendees of Guttmann 2015 are entitled to the discounted registration rate for the ANZAMP meeting.
