About the Séminaire Lotharingien de Combinatoire
Welcome to the Séminaire Lotharingien de Combinatoire
The Séminaire Lotharingien de Combinatoire has existed since
1980 as a joint seminar in Combinatorics for the
Universities of Bayreuth, Erlangen and Strasbourg, as well as the
other Universities along the Lotharingian boundaries. Regular
meetings will continue in the same spirit, but it has been
decided in 1994 that the Seminar hosts an international
peer-reviewed electronic journal carrying the same name.
The proceedings of the periodical seminars are been reedited in electronic
form, i.e., whenever possible, papers that appeared in the
paper issues of the I.R.M.A. Strasbourg collection will become
Since vol. 32, the Séminaire Lotharingien de
Combinatoire is an electronic journal that publishes
high quality papers in combinatorics and related areas.
Original research articles, semiexpository articles, surveys,
research announcements, and software descriptions are all welcome.
It is a free journal, which
means that there are no charges for neither authors nor
readers. All papers are being refereed and, once published,
are freely available. Many of them have been read during the sessions of the
Séminaire that still meets twice a year.

"When the Séminaire was founded in 1980, Adalbert Kerber was
already in Bayreuth. However, he had spent his years as
Dozent in Aachen. Aachen and Strasbourg certainly belonged
to Lotharingen, Lothar Regnum, then Lothringen, Lorraine,
..., in any case to a kingdom that hardly ever
existed. Erlangen, the town where Volker Strehl comes
from, belonged to the kingdom of Ludwig the German,
another grandson of Charlesmagne, and can be considered, in
a wider sense, as part of Lotharingen. But we needed a
name for the Séminaire. In the meantime, Adalbert
had decided to stay in Bayreuth, a town even farther from
the "Mittelreich"! But the idea was already born, and the
name of the Séminaire spread in the mathematical
world as `Séminaire Lotharingien de
Combinatoire (Bayreuth, Erlangen, Strasbourg)'."
