The North British Functional Analysis Seminar (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.

The main purpose of NBFAS is to bring leading international figures in functional analysis to the UK.

The seminar normally meets three times a year. It holds a one or two-day meeting at one of its member institutions. Distinguished mathematicians, usually from abroad, are invited to lecture.
