Notes from the ICA Meeting that was not the AGM

 Mission of the ICA • The ICA was established in 1990 by Ralph Stanton for the purpose of promoting the development of combinatorics and of encouraging publications and conferences in combinatorics and its applications. • The three most important functions of the ICA are: • publishing the Bulletin of the ICA • supporting conferences, and • awarding medals and honorary fellowships AGM will be during:  Thanks to the BICA crew:  Editors in chief • Marco BURATTI, Università degli Studi di Perugia (Italy) • Donald KREHER, Michigan Technological University (USA) • Ortrud OELLERMANN, University of Winnipeg (Canada) • Tran VAN TRUNG, Universität Duisburg-Essen (Germany) Editorial Board • Darryn BRYANT, University of Queensland (Australia) • Peter DUKES, University of Victoria (Canada) • Tao FENG, Zhejiang University (China) • Genniani GE, School of Mathematical Sciences Capital Normal University (Beijing) • Catherine GREENHILL, University of New South Wales (Australia) • Ronald GOULD, Emory Un

Conference announcement: FQ15 June 19-23, 2023 Aubervilliers, France International Conference on Finite Fields and Their Applications 2023 (Fq15) The conference  Fq15  will take place at Campus Condorcet, Aubervilliers, France (on line 12 of the Paris metro, at one station from the limit of Paris) during the week of June 19-23, 2023. Paris 8 University is a founding member of the  Campus Condorcet Paris-Aubervilliers . Fq15  will continue the 30-year-old tradition of a forum for researchers on the mathematical aspects of finite fields and their applications. Previous editions of the  Fq  conference could be found  here . Scientific Scope Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Theory: structure of finite fields, primitive elements, normal bases, polynomials, number-theoretic aspects of finite fields, character sums, function fields, planar functions and almost perfect nonlinear functions, equations over finite fields. Computation: algorithms and complexity, polynomial factorization, decomposition, and irreduc

In memoriam Curt Lindner

Curt with son Curt Jr at the 2017 SEICCGTC after receiving the 2013 Euler Medal Charles Curtis Lindner of Auburn, Alabama, was born on July 21, 1938, in Tampa, Florida, and passed peacefully into Heaven on February 21, 2023. He was 84 years old. Mr. Lindner was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church. He graduated from Decatur High School in 1956, and Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina in 1960 where he ran track.  He earned Masters and PhD from Emory University in 1969, with d issertation "Some Embedding Theorems for Partial Latin Squares" under a dvisor Trevor Evans. Curtis proudly served in the United States Army and the United States Army Reserve from 1956 until 1964. He married Ann Richards on March 10, 1961. Curtis worked as a professor at Auburn University from 1969, achieving the status of Distinguished University Professor. He was also  Honorary Professor, University of Queensland from 1994 and  Honorary Professor of Combinatorics Universita di Catania from 2

Conference announcement: Canadam 2032

  Le français suit. We apologize for any cross-posting. CanaDAM 2023 announcement and call for participation. The next biennial CanaDAM Conference will take place June 5--8, 2023 in Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada. This will be an in-person meeting hosted jointly by the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg. Conference website: The general topic of the conference is the theory and application of discrete structures. Its goal is to highlight the most salient trends in the field. The conference will bring together researchers from the various disciplines with which discrete and algorithmic mathematics interact. Particular areas of interest include graphs and digraphs, hypergraphs, matroids, ordered sets, designs, coding theory, enumeration, combinatorics of words, discrete optimization, discrete and computational geometry, lattice point enumeration, combinatorial algorithms, computational complexity, and applications of discrete and algorithmic mathemat
