Special Announcement - Conference Proceedings


As announced at the Combinatory Analysis 2018 conference, following the standard rules of journal refereeing, we will edit a Special Issue of the Annals of Combinatorics to honor George Andrews at the occasion of passing the milestone age of 80.  In case you have new or unpublished work which relates to the mathematical interests of George Andrews, you are cordially invited to contribute!

Please send your manuscript to

The format of your submission should be a pdf version of a LaTeX file which is formatted according to the Annals of Combinatorics style rules; download files containing description, etc., by clicking "Download Class File (zip, 189 kB)" at the web page

Note. Additionally we plan to turn the special issue into a hardcopy version which will be published with Birkhaeuser. In addition to the articles from the special issue, this extended version will also contain material more suited for a book rather than for journal publication: surveys, pictures, etc.


A banquet in George's honor is planned for Saturday evening, June 23.  The banquet is to be held at the Penn Stater.  The  cost of the banquet is $36, which includes a buffet-style meal (including vegetarian entree choices).
