The 21 papers are from two December 2007 conferences, one in Toronto and the other starting the next day in London, Ontario hosted by the Canadian Mathematical Society. Among their topics are heterogeneous hash families and covering arrays, optimal block lengths for secret key distillation, blocking sets and large transversal-free systems of mutually orthogonal Latin squares, incidence matrices with forbidden configurations, geometric constructions of quantum codes, blocking sets and low-weight code words in the generalized Reed-Muller codes, perfect codes over non-prime power alphabets, and the minimum output symbol error variance of forward error control codes.
