A stream "Generalized Newton Methods” is in preparation for        
EURO 2006 and you are warmly welcome invited to participate      
and give a presentation. This stream will consist of several
sessions and they altogether intend to give a rich overview of
recent developments in this modern and important field of
continuous optimization and analysis. In fact, papers on all
aspects on theory, numerics and application of Generalized
Newton Methods are welcome.

EURO XXI 2006 will serve as a facility for deepening and
further initiation of scientific exchanges, collaboration and
friendships in Generalized Newton Methods as well as with
the other working groups of OR, operating for the benefit of
people in our discipline and a good future.
