The Third International Conference On Group Actions and Transitive Graphs

Introduction: This conference will provide a forum for mathematicians and graduate students who are working in group theory, graph symmetry, and their applications to share their recent results and research progress and develop further collaborations; in particular, it will provide opportunities for young researchers to meet and learn more about this field. Topics of this conference will include groups, group actions, automorphism groups of graphs, transitive graphs, maps (on surfaces), and highly symmetric combinatorial structures.

Transport information:

To fly to Shenzhen, you may arrive at either Shenzhen (SZX) airport or Hong Kong (HKG) airport. For international participants, Hong Kong airport is recommended.

At the address below you may find several ways to transfer to Shenzhen from Hong Kong airport:

Several options are available 24 hours, but if you arrive at Hong Kong airport before 8:00 pm it will more convenient take ferry to Shekou port in Shenzhen. In this way, there is no need to pass through Hong Kong immigration and your checked luggage can be transferred to the ferry boat for free (you will then receive your luggage upon arrival at Shekou port). More information can be found here:

Note: Taxi drivers in Shenzhen do not accept credit cards – you must pay with cash in Chinese RMB. You can easily get to SUSTech from Shekou port by taxi (about 40 minutes for about 70 RMB) but the new Shekou ferry terminal does not have any ATMs (as of July 2017) so please ensure you have about 100 RMB cash before arrival at the ferry port. In general, foreign credit cards are not widely accepted in Shenzhen, but there are many ATMs with VISA/Mastercard logo, where one can withdraw cash with foreign debit/credit cards.
