TheBulletin of the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applicationshas been published since 1991. Currently, three volumes per year are published. In 2020, volumes 88,89 and 90 were published.
The Bulletin is edited by four editors-in-chief, namely, Marco Buratti, Donald Kreher, Ortrud Oellermann and Tran van Trung.
Starting with Volume 79 in 2017, research articles published in BICA are diamond open access. This means that there are no publication charges for authors and .pdf reprints can be downloaded free of charge by anyone.
Each volume of BICA also includes additional information, such as conference reports and announcements, that is only available to ICA members and BICA subscribers.
Annual subscriptions to BICA (three volumes per year) are available for 180 USD per year. A subscription to BICA is automatically included with membership in the ICA. As well, starting with Volume 79, complete .pdf copies of BICA are made available to ICA members.
Manuscripts should be submitted to Marco Buratti: bica at the-ica.net.
Tables of contents of back issues of the BICA prior to Volume 79 can be found at the-ica.org .
The cover design of BICA is the graph known as the Tutte-Coxeter graph or the Tutte eight-cage. Bill Tutte was the first president of the ICA, serving in that role from 1990 to 1996.
https://fq15.telecom-paris.fr/ 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

It will take place from June 3 to 9, 2018 in Arco, Province of Trento, Italy. It will be the 20th edition of this conference held in Italy--the first one in 1981, the second in 1982, and every two years ever since--with the participation of many experts in finite geometries and their applications from all over the world. The main themes of the conference will be Finite Geometries, Incidence Structures, Combinatorial Designs and Graph Theory. Arc
