At the business meeting of the British Combinatorial Conference in Birmingham, participants voted by a large margin to change the timing of the Conference from odd-numbered years to even-numbered years.
The reason for the change was the fact that more competing conferences take place in odd-numbered years, including Eurocomb and RSA.
The change will come into effect in 2022, when the first of the “new sequence” will take place at the University of Lancaster in July 2022. Tentative dates are 18–22 July 2022 (note: Moved a week earlier, to 11–15 July 2022).
The preceding BCC, the 2021 meeting in Durham, will take place as already announced; the dates are 5–9 July 2021.
