Blogroll It's the British Combinatorial Committee.     Gil Kalai is a mathematician working mainly in the field of Combinatorics.  He's a professor at the Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  Igor Pak is at UCLA, and hasn't updated lately, but the archives are fun! Peter Cameron, FTICA, is a Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Queen Mary, University of London 

 Please!  Let us know what other great blogs we're missing out on.


ICYMI = In case you missed it.  It's one of those really annoying acronyms that doesn't mean much.

But hey, here's a link where you can pay/renew/update your membership online!

Medals presented at the ACCMCC (Greenhill, Horsley, Mohar, Stones)

Bojan Mohar (Euler medal), Catherine Greenhill (Hall medal), Daniel Horsley (Kirkman medal), Rebecca Stones (Kirkman medal)

 2010 Hall Medal award to Catherine Greenhill
Catherine Greenhill’s research is primarily on discrete stochastic processes and random combinatorial structures. She has worked in at least four distinct areas of combinatorics and computer science, and has made very significant contributions to the study of random graphs, graph colourings, Markov chains, asymptotic enumeration, and complexity theory. She has published almost 40 journal and conference papers. Her nominators speak of her “expert application of advanced technical methods”, and her “reputation of being carefully precise, highly dedicated and very imaginative".

2010 Euler Medal award to Bojan Mohar
Bojan Mohar’s outstanding research and leadership over a period of thirty years place him as one of today’s foremost discrete mathematicians worldwide. His deep and important contributions have dramatica…

Medals updates
