Dear members of EUROPT,

friendly regards, and a cordial welcome to all the friends
who joined us during the last weeks! It means a pleasure, a
strong enrichment and an honour for us that you became
EUROPT members.

By this e-mail, we learn about a valuable information and
invitation which our EUROPT friend and member Prof. Dr.
Etienne de Klerk (Tilburg) sent to us by the following
announcement of the workshop HPOPT 2006. It is going
to take place at the occasion of the 65th birthday of our
dear EUROPT teacher Prof. Dr. Kees Roos who has served
our group in so many ways and supported a great number
of EUROPT members on their academical lifelines.

Cordial thanks to dear Etienne and his organizing colleagues
for inviting us and for their preparations, and to Prof. Roos -
dear Kees - for all what he has done for us.

With best wishes,
yours sincerely,
Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber
vice-coordinator
