CONVEX OPTIMIZATION METHODS
*********************************************
at  EURO XXI 2006
************************
21st European Conference
on Operational Research

in Reykjavik, Iceland,
July 2-5, 2006

cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc

A stream "Convex Optimization 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 classical domain of
continuous optimization. In fact, papers on all aspects of theory
and application of convex optimization are welcome.

EURO XXI 2006 will serve as a facility for deepening
and further initiation of scientific exchanges, collaboration
and friendships in convex optimization methods 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   Marc Teboulle  (Tel-Aviv University, Israel)
     e-mail:  
teboulle@post.tau.ac.il .

Two working groups on continuous optimization are
hosting this and related streams 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.

EURO XXI 2006 -
Stream "Stochastic Programming"

Cordial Invitation
*********************
to the Stream

STOCHASTIC PROGRAMMING
***************************************
at  EURO XXI 2006
************************
21st European Conference
on Operational Research

in Reykjavik, Iceland,

cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc

A stream "Stochastic Programming" is in careful preparation
for EURO 2006 and you are cordially invited to participate and
present a paper. This stream will consist of four or more
sessions and they altogether intend to give a rich overview of
recent developments in this important domain of OR and
applied mathematics. In fact, papers on all aspects of theory,
methods and practice of stochastic programming are welcome.

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