As many of you know, the series of CoNE conferences came to an end after 9 years.  What you may not know is that a new series of regional meetings in combinatorics is in progress here in the North East, but with a different format.  There will be 2 or 3 meetings a year on a Saturday at different venues in the region.  The first meeting  was at University of Massachusetts in Amherst on October 12, 2001, the second was at Dartmouth College on May 11, 2002 and now the third will be at the University at Albany on September 28, 2002. We hope to see you at this and future meetings!

External funding to defray expenses of host institutions is now available. Please get in touch with any of us if you wish to host a future meeting in the series.
