Dear members of EUROPT,
dear friends,

today, it is a great honour for us and a pleasure likewise that
one of our most experienced teachers of EUROPT, we may
really say: one of our group's academical fathers, Professor
Dr. József Kolumbán from Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj, has
sent to us a careful and precious report about "International
Conference in Memoriam Gyula Farkas", Cluj-Napoca, Romania, August
23-26, 2005, which was organized with his colleagues
and celebrated with many guests from all over the world! As we
may note, there were a number of friends and members of
EUROPT also who participated and enjoyed those days in
Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca, located in beautiful Transylvania.
The Hungarian name of the city is Kolozsvar and the German one
is Klausenburg. Cluj is a place of science and education with a
long tradition. Together with the participants, today we are
honouring famours optimizer Gyula Farkas but also the organizers
for this precious event and contribution to continuous optimization
and its community. To Prof. Kolumban and all them, and to all the
friends who shared a valuable common time:

Cordial congratulation and all the best wishes for all of you!

Thank you very much, dear József!

With best wishes,
sincerely yours,
Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber
