Cordial Invitation
********************
to the
Stream “LINEAR PROGRAMMING”
*****************************************
at EURO XXI 2006
***********************
21st European Conference
on Operational Research

in Reykjavik, Iceland, July 2-5, 2006

http://www.euro2006.org/
*****************************************

For EURO 2006 a Linear Programming stream now in preparation and you
are cordially invited to participate, present a paper and
exchange ideas with others on all stages of this area of
application developed by modern OR! This stream will consist
of four or more sessions which are going to draw a state-of-the-art
picture of Linear Programming and its future challenges. The
stream and session organizers represent its backgrounds in both
mathematics and OR, along with theory and methods in many
applications.

The stream organizer of the stream "Linear Programming" invites
contributions to the following and possibly further sessions:

o   Complexity of Interior Point Methods,
o   Implementation of Interior Point Methods
    and Simplex Methods / Software for Linear Programming,
o   Probabilistic Analysis of Linear Programming,   and
o   Application of Linear Programming.

EURO XXI 2006 wishes to serve as a facility for deepening and
further Linear Programming as well as with the other working
groups of OR, operating for the benefit of people in our
discipline and a good future.

Stream Organizer and Contact:
********************************
o    Petra Huhn (Technische Universitaet Clausthal, Germany),
      e-mail:

Two Working Groups host various streams on Continuous Optimization at
the conference:

o   EURO Working Group on Continuous Optimization  
     (EUROPT):  
http://www.iam.metu.edu.tr/EUROPT/,
o   The Pacific Optimization Research Activity Group
     (POP):

Furthermore, we will have a special theme for the whole
conference: "OR for Better Management of Sustainable
Development", Plenary and Semi-Plenary Lectures, and a
special issue of European Journal of Operational Research
(EJOR) for the conference proceedings.
