We report on the successful outcome of a project to provide complete theoretical and practical solutions to conjugacy problems in finite classical groups.

In particular we can list all classes; construct centralisers; and decide constructively conjugacy between elements of all classical groups. We discuss the implications of this work for the identical problems in finite groups. This is joint work with Giovanni de Franchesci and Martin Liebeck.
