NBFAS was founded in February 1968 by the late Frank Bonsall and John Ringrose with a meeting at the University of Edinburgh. The founding universities were Edinburgh and Newcastle. Since then, almost 200 meetings took place at the growing number of member institutions (at present 14 universities in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland) with the purpose to bring to the UK leading figures in functional analysis that are based outside the UK.
In 2018, NBFAS will turn 50 years old. An afternoon of the current meeting will be dedicated to a review of the historical development of NBFAS including contributions by seasoned members. Professor Ringrose has agreed to participate in this session.
