Conference announcement: FQ15 13-17 June 2022, Aubervilliers, France International Conference on Finite Fields and Their Applications 2022 (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 13-17, 2022. Fq15  will continue the 30-year-old tradition of a forum for researchers on the mathematical aspects of finite fields and their applications.  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 irreducibility testing, sequences and functions. Applications: algebraic coding theory, cryptography, algebraic geometry over finite fields, finite incidence

Conference Cancellation: 34MCCCC

  The 34th Midwest Conference on Combinatorics and Combinatorial Computing (MCCCC) was re-scheduled to be during October 27-29, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, due to the highly contagious delta variance of Covid-19 pandemic and many restrictions and uncertainties associated with it, the  conference is canceled. The organizing committee of the conference apologies for any inconveniences that this cancelation may be causing for you.

Conference announcement: 34MCCC 27-29 October 2021, Las Vegas NV, USA The Midwestern Conference on Combinatorics and Combinatorial Computing (MCCCC) originally started as the Carbondale Combinatorics Conferences and were held (1986-1990) at the Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. The conference has since evolved to a prestigious national conference in the areas of Combinatorics and Computing and has achieved recognition and attracted scholars and researchers of various backgrounds from different institutions. Here they coalesce their individual contributions into a collection of ideas and inspirations for the advancement of combinatorics and combinatorial computing. These conferences are of small size 50 to 90 participants and have been growing slowly. Papers have covered a spectrum of pure and applied combinatorics, including graph theory, design theory, enumeration, and combinatorial computing. These are general-purpose combinatorics meetings with some emphasis on computer applications which have attracted scholar

 The Bulletin of the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications is now indexed by SCOPUS! We've been in Math Reviews and Science Citation, but now we're in SCOPUS. As a sample, here's a screenshot of one of our 2020 papers! Congratulations to the editors for making this happen.

Conference rescheduling: 43ACC 13-17 December 2021, University of Melbourne, Australia

 " Due to the current wave of  the COVID-19 pandemic in Melbourne, after consulting CMSA  we have decided to postpone 43ACC to December 2021. At this stage we are unable to confirm the exact dates, but it is likely that we will have 43ACC in early or middle December 2021.   (As usual we will avoid clash with AustMS Annual Meeting which usually takes place in early or middle December.)  We will update our website soon to inform potential participants the delay of the conference.
