Computational Methods with Applications
August 19 - 25, 2007, Harrachov, Czech Republic
This conference is supported by GAMM (Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik),
AV CR (Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic),
it has been endorsed by ILAS (The International Linear Algebra Society), and
it is organized in cooperation with the Society for
Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM),
SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra (SIAG/LA).
Following two previous highly successful meetings in computational
methods with applications held in Milovy in previous years
1997 and 2002, we will organize
from August 19th to 25th, 2007
the third meeting under the name HARRACHOV 2007.
We wish to continue in the tradition to follow the friendly
and stimulating atmosphere of the previous events. In particular we
will combine an intense scientific program based on the well-balanced
choice of invited plenary talks by distinguished scientists
with parallel sessions of contributed talks.
We assume that sufficiently long afternoon breaks will allow
a lot of discussions and interactions among participants. The program
will be planned for full five days Monday through Friday (arrival
Sunday afternoon, departure Saturday morning) with Wednesday afternoon
devoted to a trip. Thursday afternoon and Friday will be mostly
devoted to lectures of the special event,
The 7th GAMM Workshop on Applied and Numerical Linear Algebra,
coorganized with GAMM (Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mathematik und
Mechanik). The previous workshops took place in Berlin (2001),
Bielefeld (2002), Braunschweig (2003), Hagen (2004), Dresden (2005) and Duesseldorf (2006).
As in the previous meetings, the program concentrate on computational
methods, namely on methods of numerical linear algebra, their
sequential and parallel implementations and related applications.
Since a considerable part of such applications arise from numerical
solution of partial differential equations, we will support interactions
with application fields by partnership
with the series of meetings ALGORITMY which started with
the 17th meeting of this series, ALGORITMY 2005 in Podbanske in 2005
and which was organized by the Faculty of Civil Engineering,
Slovak University of Technology, Bratislava, and by collaboration with
the Necas Center for Mathematical Modelling, Charles University in Prague.

Jurjen Duintjer Tebbens, Petr Tichý
and Mirek Tuma (all ICS, Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic).
The meeting will be held at the hotel Sklar (literally "Glassmaker")
which is located in the Giant Mountains resort Harrachov.
The hotel offers modern conference facilities and a lot of indoor
and outdoor activities. The transportation from and to Prague
(approximately 100 kilometers or 65 miles) will be provided
by conference buses on August 19th and August 25th, respectively.
The place is close to the border with Germany and Poland and it is easily
accessible by car from Zittau (70 km, 50 miles) and Jelenia Gora
(35 km, 20 miles).
We look forward to see you in Harrachov! May you wish to express your interest or ask for any
