WSEAS Post-Conference International Editions International Books and Journals

   With much success, WSEAS closed the conferences of 2003 celebrating in the sea resort of Astir Palace   in the nice suburb of Athens, Vouliagmeni, the end of the 7th year of WSEAS and the beginning of the 8th. The year 2004 is the year of Olympic Games in Athens and for this reason the conference participants had the opportunity to enjoy also the festive atmosphere of Athens and admire the holidays in the Syntagma Square.
   The scientific level of the conference was high and the participation satisfactory taking into account the narrow subject of the meeting (mathematical methods).
Following the tradition, WSEAS cuts the New Year's cake (Saint Vassilios' Cake) in the morning of December 31 in the Aphrodite Hotel of Astir Palace.
   At the end of the morning's session, Prof. Bojkovic (senior member of WSEAS) gave a brief speech underlining the importance of the WSEAS conferences and strongly encouraging the young researchers to attend the meetings because of their big scientific importance and of the opportunity to publish their research in the WSEAS books and journals. Prof. Bojkovic (Belgrade University in Serbia) is well known Professor in the area of Telecommunications and Signal Processing and Fellow member of other scientific societies (outside WSEAS).
   In the previous night (December 30), a wonderful banquet with live orchester and folklore show took place in the cosmopolitan salon of the Hotel where almost all the participants of the conference participate in the dance and one of them also played a traditional greek musical instrument ("cretan lyra").
