The idea behind the special session was to bring together three areas of infinite group theory that share a powerful tool: the analysis of group structure through an action on a locally finite graph. Subdegree-finite permutation groups act on an orbital graph, finitely generated groups act on a Cayley graph, and compactly generated totally disconnected locally compact groups act on a Cayley–Abels graph.

In the Special Session there were speakers from across the world: USA, Australia, Europe and South America. The talks were excellent. James Maynard (University of Oxford) gave the…
