Message from the President of the ICA
I hope everyone is staying healthy during the ongoing
pandemic. I would like to let you know about a few updates relating to the ICA.
First, the ICA Office will be moving from Florida Atlantic University to the University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD). Dalibor Froncek is working with Spyros Magliveras to effect the necessary changes, which will take place in the coming months. Spyros has decided to step back from his role as Registrar, and after consideration and a vote by ICA Council, the move to UMD was approved. We are of course very grateful to Spyros for his work as Registrar and his long-standing support of the the ICA.
The next change concerns the Bulletin of the ICA (BICA). I am very pleased to announce that Ortrud Oellermann has accepted an invitation to become an Editor-in-Chief of BICA. Ortrud is a longstanding ICA Fellow and a Hall medal winner, and her expertise in graph theory will be valuable to BICA moving forward.
Also in connection with BICA is the news that it will be indexed by Scopus. We just received the positive decision from the Content Selection & Advisory Board of Scopus within the last week. We will be receiving a content coverage agreement from Scopus within the next three months.
Finally, I would like to mention that Gus Simmons recently made a very generous donation to the ICA for use with the Bulletin. Gus is an Honorary Fellow of the ICA, which is the highest honour bestowed by the ICA. On behalf of the ICA, I would like to sincerely thank Gus for his donation.
