**Subject: Seminar on Inverse Problems and Applications, Mar 21-24, 2006**

A SEMINAR ON INVERSE PROBLEMS AND APPLICATIONS will be held at the

Auditorium of CBPF/LNCC in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from March 21 to

24, 2006. The Seminar goal is both to celebrate the 25th year of the

creation of the National Laboratory of Scientific Computation

(LNCC/MCT) and to honor the pioneer work due to Professor Alberto

Calderon. In 1980, during a workshop held at LNCC (which was about to

be created), Professor Calderon's lecture pointed out a seminal

result for Inverse Problems.

Further information on the Seminar is available at
