The Midlands Graduate School (MGS) in the Foundations of Computing Science is a collaboration between researchers at the Universities of Birmingham, Leicester, Nottingham and Sheffield. It was established in 1999. The MGS has two main goals: to provide PhD students with a sound basis for research in the mathematical and practical foundations of computing and to give PhD students the opportunity to make contact with established researchers in the field and their peers who are at a similar stage in their research careers.

This year, the MGS is at the University of Nottingham. It will start on 22 April and finish on 26 April.
