The S¨¦minaire 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 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 electronically available.
Starting with vol. 32, all papers, now appearing in electronic form, are being refereed. Most of them have been read during the sessions of the S¨¦minaire that still meets twice a year.
The editorial board reflects our European initiative. Most of its members participate in a European program in Algebraic Combinatorics. We mean to enlarge the editorial board to scholars from the entire world showing a definite interest in the very many facets of Combinatorics.
We keep collaborating with the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics published in America under the auspices of Herb S. Wilf, who is also a member of our editorial board.
