Dear members of EUROPT,
friendly regards! A special welcome to those of you
who joined EUROPT during the previous weeks and
became new members. It is fine that you are with us
and we are grateful; you are important for our group,
scientifically and personally.
There is some information which we want to give by
(1) On http://www.cs.elte.hu/opres/Pecs05EUROmini/
we can find first information about our EURO Mini
Conference "Optimization in the Industry" in Pecs,
Hungary, June 29 - July 1, 2005. You are sincerely
invited to come to Pecs, and possibly would also
like to spread the enclosed announcement a bit!
Thanks to our Hungarian friends for their efforts!
(2) Our two mini-symposia, submitted by our friends
Prof. Marco Lopez and Prof. Jan Rückmann for 8th
SIAM Conference on Optimization, have become
accepted! Their streams "Semi-Infinite Programming
I / II" are on Linear and Nonlinear SIP, respectively.
Congratulations to Marco and Jan, and to Prof. Sven A.
Gustafson as the initiator! But also to Prof. Tamas Terlay
whose stream on the Central Path in IPM is also associated
with EUROPT, and to other of our members and friends for
their conference organization, or MS acceptance and
contributions! For closer details, please visit of
With the SIAM conference in Sweden, also our Nordic time will
be opened, with a strong continuation on Iceland in 2006
(cf. also (5))!
(3) Our friend and EUROPT member Dr. Jiming Peng informs
about his and his colleagues' "Workshop on Mathematical
Programming in Data Mining and Machine Learning",
June 1-4, 2005, at McMaster University, Hamilton, ON,
Canada. Please find the announcement of this valuable
(4) Our friend Dr. Dorien DeTombe, coordinator of EURO
Working Group on Complex Societal Problems, and
EUROPT member, invites and devotes her group's
special efforts in 2005 to help and studies at the occasion
of the recent tsunami (for contact: DeTombe@lri.jur.uva.nl).
(5) Furthermore, the preparations on EURO 2006 are going
on very well, e.g., in our various fields of continuous
by EUROPT and our friends from POP! Soon the streams
and their organizers will be published on EURO 2006
Our 5 th EUROPT workshop preceding EURO 2006 is on
a good way of preparation likewise!
For more detailled information, also about other precious events
and engagements up to 2007, further e-mails will follow.
With friendly regards and best wishes,
Florian Jarre and Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber
