  Dear Colleague,
Following a longstanding tradition, the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague will organize a Spring School on Analysis. The School will be held at Paseky nad Jizerou, in a chalet in the Krkonose Mountains, April 23 - April 29, 2006.
The program will consist of series of lectures on

The purpose of this meeting is to bring together researchers with common interest in the field. There will be opportunities for informal discussions.
Graduate students and others beginning their mathematical career are encouraged to participate.

The conference fee will be EUR 400. A reduced rate of EUR 370 will be offered provided that an application form reaches the organizers before January 15, 2006.
The  conference fee includes all local expenses (room and board) and transportation between Prague and Paseky. The fee for accompanying persons is the same.

We are looking forward to meeting you in the Czech Republic.
