Hosted by: The Centre of Mathematics for Applications, University of Oslo, Norway
The conference is a follow-up of the 2003 Kick-Off for CMA, in which we presented some key research areas to be attacked from our recently established centre of excellence.
The intentions now are to present recent advances in the key areas of the CMA research plan. We have invited distinguished members of the international research community within these areas. Members of CMA will also give talks, presenting representative parts of CMA's own contributions to achieved advances.
