Welcome to the home of the 19th Postgraduate Group Theory Conference, which was held at the University of Cambridge, UK, from Tuesday 27 June to Friday 30 June 2017.

This is an annual conference organised by PhD students for PhD students in group theory and related areas to share their research in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. The opening and closing talks will be given by our invited speakers, and the majority of the conference will consist of contributed talks.

This was the second time that PGTC is held in Cambridge, the first being ten years ago in 2007.
