Dear Colleagues,

it is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the series of ALGORITMY conferences (see also ALGORITMY 2002, ALGORITMY 2000, ALGORITMY'97).

ALGORITMY (Algorithms) represents the oldest Central-European series of international high level scientific meetings devoted to applied mathematics, numerical methods, computational sciences and engineering, traditionally organized in the High Tatra Mountains, Slovakia.

Following this old tradition, the 17th ALGORITMY conference will be devoted to computational methods, their analysis, algorithmic realization and application to real-world problems arising from but not restricted to natural sciences, engineering, technology, medicine and finance. Among the traditional topics we could name

* computational fluid dynamics
* nonlinear heat and mass transfer
* modelling of flow in porous media
* computational finance
* image processing and computer vision
* data analysis and pattern recognition
* free boundary problems
* inverse problems
* computational geometry and grid generation
* scientific visualization
*software for scientific computations.

In solving real-world problems, application of modern numerical methods (as finite elements, finite volumes and finite differences) is accompanied by solving the arising systems of equations. These two parts were always present in the tradition of the ALGORITMY conferences. ALGORITMY 2005 will be organized in collaboration with the meeting "Computational Linear Algebra with Applications". A part of ALGORITMY 2005 can therefore be considered as continuation of the two meetings hold in Milovy, Czech Republic, in 1997 and 2002. That part focuses, in addition to some topics mentioned above, on

* direct and iterative methods for large linear algebraic systems
* preconditioning techniques
* optimization and nonlinear algebraic problems
* eigenvalue problems
* numerical stability

By this collaboration and making these topics visible in the program of ALGORITMY 2005 we wish to promote contacts between different parts of the computational mathematics community. We hope that this will appear fruitful and will continue in a corresponding way in the next Milovy meeting planned for the year 2007.

Refereed conference Proceedings of contributed lectures and posters will be published before the conference by Slovak University of Technology. You are invited to submit a high quality paper related to the topics of the conference. (See issues from ALGORITMY 2000 and ALGORITMY 2002)

Proceedings of plenary lectures and selected contributions of participants will appear after the conference in Springer-Verlag mathematical journal Computing and Visualization in Science.

The programme of the conference will consist of 50-minutes and 40-minutes invited plenary lectures, 25-minutes contributed talks of participants and a poster session.

The scientific programme will begin on Monday, March 14th at 9am and end on Friday, March 18th afternoon.

The accomodation will begin on Sunday, March 13th (dinner) and end on Friday, March 18th (lunch).

Early electronic registration help us in organization of the conference.

T.Bognar, O.Drblikova, P.Frolkovic, A.Handlovicova, M.Komornikova, Z.Kriva, K.Mikula, M.Minarova, P.Struk
