‎In this paper‎, ‎we propose two iterative methods for finding a common solution of a finite family of equilibrium problems ‎for pseudomonotone bifunctions‎. ‎The first is a parallel hybrid extragradient-cutting algorithm which is extended from the‎ ‎previously known one for variational inequalities to equilibrium problems‎. ‎The second is a new cyclic hybrid‎ ‎extragradient-cutting algorithm‎. ‎In the cyclic algorithm‎, ‎using the known techniques‎, ‎we can perform and develop practical numerical experiments.
