Conference Announcement: Stinson 66 13-17 June, 2022 Fields Institute Stinson66 - New Advances in Designs, Codes and Cryptography June 13 - 17, 2022 ,  The Fields Institute Location:  Fields Institute, Room 230 Description This conference will celebrate Doug Stinson’s 66th birthday and highlight his contributions to the fields of designs, codes, cryptography, and their connections. The goal is to explore recent developments, open problems and conjectures in combinatorial design theory along with applications to related areas including codes, cryptography, networks, and algorithms. We intend to bring together leading researchers from around the world, along with graduate students, postdocs and other early-career researchers. The conference will consist of invited talks only and will provide ample opportunity for discussion and collaboration among the participants.   Keynote Speakers Marco Buratti, University of Perugia Simon Blackburn, Royal Holloway University of London Charlie Colbourn, Arizona S

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
