I don't know the abstract for this talk, but it may be similar to the one
for his talk at Swarthmore College, which I include here for your

Associated to any periodic tiling of the Euclidean plane is a certain
finite, colored graph, called the "Delaney-Dress symbol" of the tiling.
These graphs classify tilings in the sense that two tilings are
equivalent if and only if their symbols are isomorphic. We will discuss
algorithms that make use of this theory to systematically generate and
visualize "all possible" periodic tilings of the Euclidean plane. A
Macintosh application called RepTiles will be demonstrated.
