Message from the Chairman of the Local Organising Committee Prof. Dr. Hans J. Rath
As a member of the GAMM e.V. and head of the Local Organising Team of the 79th Annual Meeting of the International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics GAMM2008, I would like to express that it is a great honour for me and my staff to invite the GAMM community again to our Free Hanseatic City of Bremen.
Already in 1998 we had the honour to organise the meeting with great success and I believe that all participants and also everyone involved in the organisation have kept it in good memory. Now, ten years later, the requirements of modern conference organisation have changed enormously and I hope we can prove that with 10 years of experience the up-coming event will run even more smoothly but with the same dedicated spirit.
No matter if this will be your first trip to Bremen or if you have experienced the hospitality of our wonderful historic town several times before - I am convinced that you will discover many new aspects of the city, especially its modern, progressive and scientific qualities. Bremen has not only developed into an important centre of aeronautics and space technology in Europe, but was also the first German city to receive the national award “City of Science”.
Our preparations for this event have already started and we are very motivated to make it an unforgettable experience for all delegates and accompanying persons.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Bremen!
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans J. Rath
