  2022 Combinatorics, Computing, Group Theory and Applications in South Florida (CCGTA in SOUTH FLA) Boca Raton, Florida, August 14-21, 2022 Scientific Reason The purpose of the conference is to bring together experts in Group Theory, Combinatorics and Computing to discuss computational, algorithmic and application aspects that have recently emerged at the interface between these areas. These areas are fundamental now to modern communications and have values for the economy and the continuing upgrading and staying ahead in our undergraduate and postgraduate programs in these important developments. We will focus somewhat on different applications to other sciences .  We will also explore computational approaches like Computational Group Theory that give rise to new methodology in proving theoretical results. Financial Support We shall devote substantial efforts to get some funds to support participation by individuals who do not have federal support, or who are students, post-doctoral

Call for Nominations: The Euler, Hall, Kirkman, and Stanton Medals and Honorary Fellows

 Until 31 December 2022, nominations are invited for the 2022 Medals of the ICA, and for Honorary Fellowship in the ICA. A nomination for a medal or for Honorary Fellowship is to be made by at least two nominators. Each nominator must be an Associate Fellow, Fellow, or Honorary Fellow of the ICA. Nominees must not be members of the ICA Council as of the closing date of nominations; nominees for the Euler, Hall, and Kirkman medals must not be Honorary Fellows. Normally, nominees must also meet the eligibility requirements given below, although documented career interruptions are taken into account when assessing eligibility. Each nomination must include a complete curriculum vitae, list of publications, and a letter of support. The letter of support must provide details of the extent and importance of the nominee's contributions in relation to the selection criteria, and include a summary of up to 200 words understandable to the broad membership of the ICA.
