BICA call for papers

Dear Colleagues,

We (Marco Buratti, Donald Kreher and Tran van Trung) ​have recently been named Editors-in-Chief of the Bulletin of the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications (BICA). Our goal is to re-invigorate this publication as well as improve the quality of papers published in it.

​We are interested in publishing a wider variety of items than before, including expository and survey papers, classroom notes, conference reviews, conference announcements, and news of members, along with research papers. Because there is a lack of material in the pipeline, we encourage all ICA members to submit high quality papers for publication.

There will be a dedicated email address for the Bulletin set up in the near future.​ But for now, please submit your items for possible inclusion in BICA to the following email address:

Sincerely yours,

Marco, Don and Trung
