Dear members of EUROPT,

sincere regards; a good start into the new week!

In the e-mail from February 7, we reminded of
some forthcoming events in 2005, prepared by
EUROPT and by its friends. As some of you
may recall or it may be added now, there are
further ones this year we are looking forward to:

a)  The Eighth SIAM Conference on Optimization,
     Stockholm, Sweden, May 15-18, 2005,

     where we are represented by 2 sessions, a third
     one associated (we gave details earlier) and
     a number of further valuable contributions by
     EUROPT members;

b)  IFORS 2005, Hawaii, July 11-15, 2005,

     where we are invited to two sessions on

     "Continuous Optimization and the
     Transportation Problems"

     (organizer: our friend Tatiana Tchemisova).

     At the end of last week we got the acceptance
     by Prof. Ariela Sofa (member of IFORS 2005
     PC). This is a joint contribution of EUROPT and
     POP. Congratulation to Tatiana, thanks to her,
     to Prof. George Leitman and Prof. Luca Lambertini
     who gave encouragement and help, to our friend
     Ariela Sofer and the other members of IFORS
     2005 PC.
