First Announcement

Dear Colleague,

Following a longstanding tradition, the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague will organize a

Spring School on Variational Analysis.

The School will be held at Paseky nad Jizerou, in a chalet in the Krkonose Mountains, April 27 - May 3, 2003. The program will consist of the following series of lectures:

Alexander Ioffe (Technion University, Haifa, Israel): "Variational Analysis in Metric Spaces"

Adrian Lewis (Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, Canada): "Eigenvalue Optimization and Non-Smooth Analysis"

Boris S. Mordukhovich (Wayne State University, Detroit, USA): "Sequential Variational Analysis in Infinite Dimensions"

Jean-Paul Penot (University of Pau, Pau, France) "Analysis of Value Functions"

More details and the registration form can be found at the URL address


The conference fee will be EUR 350. A discount will be offered provided that a letter guaranteeing participation reaches the organizers before January 15, 2003. The conference fee includes all local expenses (room and board) and transportation between Prague and Paseky. The fee for accompanying persons is the same.
