Conference Postponement: Combinatorics 2020/2022

  Dear Colleagues I inform that, due to the Coronavirus emergency, the organizers have decided that the Conference "Combinatorics 2021" will NOT take place 31 May - 4 June 2021. This event was already a postponed version of "Combinatorics 2020"   originally scheduled for 1-5 June 2020. The event is rescheduled for 30 May - 3 June 2022, another year ahead. The Conference will thus hopefully become a "Combinatorics 2022" at Mantua (Italy). The pandemic situation in Europe is known. The Italian Government is going back and forth with partial openings and limitations. Travelling from one region to another one is currently forbidden, unless strictly necessary. The vaccine campaign has not properly taken off yet. The Organizing Committee feels that no reasonable planning is possible for June 2021 under these circumstances. At the same time we felt that we did not want to turn this Conference into a virtual event. Whence our decision for a further postponement.

Combinatorics in the news The eScholarship Publishing program of the University of California is pleased to announce the launch of  Combinatorial Theory , a new mathematics journal expecting its first issue in Spring 2021. This journal will publish papers in Combinatorics, an active area of mathematical research with applications throughout the mathematical, computational and natural sciences.  Combinatorial Theory  is owned by mathematicians who believe in the importance of unfettered access to research as a means of engaging the global combinatorial community. As such, it is an open access publication, with no fees for authors or readers.
