Following a longstanding tradition, the Faculty of Mathematics
and Physics of the Charles University in Prague will organize
a Spring Conference on
Nonseparable Banach Spaces.
The Conference will be held at
Paseky nad Jizerou, in a chalet in
the Krkonose Mountains,
April 18 - 24, 2004.
The purpose of this meeting is to bring together researchers with
common interest in the field. There will be opportunities for
Graduate students and others beginning their mathematical career are
encouraged to participate.
The topic of the conference is the theory of nonseparable
Banach spaces. It is a rich area, closely related with topology,
nonlinear analysis, combinatorics and set theory, which offers many open
problems. Therefore we hope that the conference will attract
the attention of young researchers and students as well as
specialists in the above mentioned fields.
The organization of this meeting is not exactly in the spirit
of previous Spring Schools - instead of the series of lectures
given by few leading experts in the field, we intend to organize
a usual conference type meeting. This will also give young
participants a chance to present their work.
The conference fee will be EUR 360. A reduced rate of
EUR 310 will be offered provided that an application
form reaches the organizers before January 15, 2004.
Komercni banka, Praha 1, Vaclavske nam. 42
The conference fee includes all local expenses (room and board)
and transportation between Prague and Paseky. The fee for
accompanying persons is the same.
The organizers may provide financial support to a limited
number of students. Applications must be sent before
January 15, 2004.
Payment should be made in cash at the registration board in Paseky, or

credit cards can be used and will not be accepted.
The village of Paseky lies in the slopes of the Krkonose
Mountains in the North Bohemia. Accommodation consists of rooms for
two or three people. A single room can be arranged on demand if
the capacity of the chalet allows. In such case additional
EUR 100 will be charged.
There are excellent facilities and conditions for sporting activities:
hiking trips, soccer, mini-golf and sauna.
A special bus from Prague to Paseky will leave at 4 p.m.
on Sunday, April 18, 2004. The bus from Paseky will
arrive in Prague on Saturday, April 24, 2004.
at about 11:30 a.m.
In case of interest please fill in the preliminary
The last announcement containing more details will be distributed
in due time.
Due to the limited capacity of accommodation facilities
the organizers may be forced to decline some later registrations.
