Cheryl Praeger Retirement Mini-Symposium

Cheryl Praeger Retirement Mini-symposium (April 13, 2017)

Cheryl began her career at the University of Western Australia in 1976, and has recently retired after 40 years of service.

- Jacqui Ramagge (University of Sydney)

This event has been generously supported by the Faculty of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (UWA). All of the talks will take place in the Case Study Room, The University Club.
