Dear colleague,

we cordially invite you to attend the 14th Workshop on Discrete Optimization to be held in Holzhau near the Czech border in the attractive Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains) in Saxony.

The topics of the Workshop are structures and algorithms in Discrete Optimization. Talks on open questions and applications of Discrete Optimization are especially welcome. This workshop will continue the tradition of biannual workshops on discrete optimization and the scientific cooperation with eastern European universities.

The workshop facility will be the ``Fischerbaude'' in Holzhau about 30 km south of Freiberg. To get more information about the ``Fischerbaude'' please visit the web site




The participation fee will be approximately DM 400. It includes registration, accomodation and meals from tuesday noon to friday noon, coffee breaks, excursion and social event.
