* Past special events:

(1) The First Summer School on Symmetries of Combinatorial Structures (Cuernavaca, 2012)
                             My stuff on reflection and rotation groups in ordinary space

                                            
(2) The Fields Graduate Mini-Course  on Polytopes, Maps and their Symmetries
         (by P. McMullen, M. Conder and me) ran Oct. 3 to Nov. 10, 2011. Here is my part:
