A special session on Finite Geometries and Combinatorial Designs was
held at a regional conference of the American Mathematical Society in Lin-
coln, Nebraska during October 29-November 1, 1987. The organizers of the
session were Dale Mesner and the editors of these proceedings. We were
pleasantly surprised at the large number of participants from several coun-
tries who came to Lincoln for the three-day conference. We were even more
pleased at the very high quality of results presented at the conference and
submitted to the proceedings. We wish to thank conference participants,
contributors to this volume, and referees. The editors take the liberty of ded-
icating this volume to Dale M. Mesner in appreciation of his contributions
to combinatorics.
The editors express their thanks to the University of Nebraska, especially
the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Mathemat-
ics, for funding and other support. Very special gratitude is due to Leanne
Magliveras for her expert typesetting of the manuscripts.
