Dear members of EUROPT,

Special Issue "Challenges of Continuous Optimization in
Theory and Applications" at the occasion of 4th EUROPT
workshop with the same title, Rhodes, Greece, July 2-3, 2004
(we regularly informed about workshop and issue), are at
Elsevier publishing house, in further processing towards
appearance. The authors will receive an official letter from
Elsevier. Prof. Dr. Jacques Teghem, one of the editors of
EJOR, expresses his thanks to the guest editors, which they
forward to all authors and referees. Please find included the
preface prepared for this completed EJOR special issue.

There is still an opportunity given for late submission to our
EJOR special issue "Continuous Optimization in the Industry",
and according to a recent Call for Papers also for the one
related with EURO XXI 2006. For the latter issue, the width
of continuous optimization - your excellence - is welcome as
far as it can show an applicability to the topic of sustainable
development. Please find the corresponding attachment.

With best wishes,
yours sincerely,
Gerhard-Wilhelm Weber
