The Autumn Conference 2005 of Operations Research Society of Japan (ACORSJf05), organized by the Operations Research Society of Japan, will be held in Kobe Gakuin University, Kobe, Japan from September 14 to 15, 2005. An Asia Session will joint to ACORSJf05. The Asia Session (URL: of ACORSJf05 is an international symposium around Asia with goals to provide a forum for Asian scientists, researchers, educators, and practitioners to exchange ideas and approaches, to present research findings and state-of-the-art solutions, to share experiences on potentials and limits, on all issues and topics related to the theories and applications of Operations Research. Theme of the ACORSJf05 will be focused on gUbiquitous Society and ORh. We are particularly interested in submissions that report on experimental and applied research motivated by real-world problems.
Theoretical and applied papers are expected to show convincingly the usefulness and efficiency of optimization algorithms discussed in a practical setting. Interested research topics from operations research theory and related application area are welcome, including, but not limited to:

Linear Programming and Nonlinear Programming			Decision Theory
Optimization theory					Financial Engineering
Queuing Theory and its Application				Management Science and Engineering
Logistics and Supply Chain Management			Game Theory	
Graph Theory and Networks					System Sciences and Engineering

The Eighth Czech-Japan Seminar 2005 on Data Analysis and Decision Making under Uncertainty

Trest, Czech RepublicCSeptember, 18 - September, 21, 2005

General Information
The Czech-Japan seminar have become already a traditional meeting of scientists whose research interests concern methods for decision support in environment with uncertainty and their application in economics and engineering. Seminars are regularly held alternatively in Japan and the Czech Republic since 1999. First meetings were financially supported by an International Collaborative Research Project between Czech Republic and Japan. This support also made it possible that in the first year (1999) two meetings were organized. Since 2000 there have been traditionally only one in a year:
1st seminar March 1999 JAIST Hokuriku, 2nd seminar September 1999 Celadna,
3rd seminar October 2000 Osaka, 4th seminar September 2001 Jindrichuv Hradec
5th seminar September 2002 Mt. Koyasan, 6th seminar September 2003 Valtice
7th seminar September 2004 Awaji Yumebutai, 8th seminar September 2005 Trest

Scope of the meeting
Contributions describing theoretical tools supporting decision making processes under uncertainty and vagueness, as well as application of such tools and processes are invited. The working character of the meeting is stressed by the fact that papers casting new problems and inspiring discussions are welcome, as well as contributions presenting promising but yet not finished results.

Paper submission
All submitted papers should be in English, prepared according to the instructions in LATEX, see template in LaTex (template in PDF). Recommended length is 6 - 10 pages. Papers submitted in another format may be accepted for presentation but will not be included in Proceedings. The same holds also for papers submitted after the dead-line: August, 2. Venue The conference will be held in Trest - a small town situated in calm environment and lovely nature in the southeastern part of Czech-Moravian Heights, distant only 13 km from the well-known historic town Telc. The seminar will take place in the Trest Chateau, which will also provide accommodation for the participants. For more information on the seminar location and accommodation visit the home page of Trest Chateau Hotel Homepage. Japanese participants are exempted from the conference fee.

All participants-to-be are kindly asked to register in : We cannot guarantee acceptance of participants registered after the dead-line: June 14, 2005. Transport Trest is accessible from both Prague (by train it takes 3 hours with few changes of train, by direct bus 2 hours 30 minutes, by car 2 hours) and Vienna (by train it takes 6 hours with few changes of train, by car 3 hours). Time tables will be available here later.


The 11th Asia Pacific Management Conference

APMC-2005, Nov 18 - 20, 2005, Tainan, Taiwan,

Theme : Managing Pacific Rim Enterprises, Home page:
The 11th Asia Pacific Management Conference (the Conference), organized by National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan), will be held on November 18~20, 2005 in National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan. The aim of the Conference is to provide a forum for academics and professionals to share the advanced knowledge and experiences in management of Asian Pacific Rim. The Conference includes paper presentation and forum.


BIOCOMP2005: Diffusion Processes in Neurobiology and Subcellular Biology

December 12-16, 2005, Hotel Lloyd's Baia, Vietri sul Mare (Amalfi Coast), Italy

A program of invited lectures, selected contributed papers and round table discussions. Topics are centered on information processing and coding in neuronal systems and on molecular motors. Some invited talks will also focus on current problems in various other areas of applications of mathematics to life sciences and a "not to forget" session will be devoted to revisiting the origin of modern biomathematics, computation and information science as stemming from the pioneering work of Norbert Wiener, Warren McCulloch, Claude Shannon, and of other fathers of Cybernetics and of its related areas.
