Summer School on
Wavelets

Zakopane, Poland, August 31 - September 4, 1996

Supported by EU project BENEFIT
Organized by STU Gliwice, Poland in cooperation with Institute of Mathematics, Polish Academy of Science


BENEFIT

BENEFIT is the name for the concerted action launched by the European Community within the framework of the COPERNICUS 94 programme. The long-term objective of this action is to build a firm basis for scientific and technological collaboration in the fields of microelectronics and signal processing between research groups from Central and East European countries and from the European Community. This will be realised, among others, by the organisation of workshops, summer schools, and information days at different places in Central and Eastern Europe.

Summer School on WAVELETS

One of the events organised within the BENEFIT framework is the Summer School on Wavelets. Its aim is to exchange experience and knowledge in the area of beautiful theory of wavelets and its application, with particular focus on signal processing. The scientific programme includes invited lectures (two or three lectures daily, each lecture comprising 2 x 50 minutes) and a number of short talks given by the participants. The lectures and short talks will be published separately. The official School language (lectures, talks, papers) will be English.

The Summer School will be held in Zakopane, Poland, in the most famous and attractive place in the Polish Tatra mountains. The place is located near the Slovakian border within a short distance from Krakow and Katowice. These cities have convenient air links with many European airports, and regular bus and train connections with Zakopane.

The School follows immediately the Workshop on Design Methodologies for Signal Processing which will also take place in Zakopane, August 28- 31 and is also part of BENEFIT action.

 Accommodation
 =============
 Participants are awaited in the "Siwarna" rest house, Zakopane-Koscielisko,
 32 Sywarne St. The accommodation is arranged in single, double,
 and three-bedded rooms and is available from Saturday, August 31 (with
 supper on this day as the first meal) to Wednesday, September 4 (lunch
 on that day included). Full board is provided (three meals daily).
 For extra payment the rest house offers various recreation facilities
 (swimming-pool, sauna, massage, solarium, well-equipped gym-hall,
 tennis court).

 Registration Fee
 ================
 The registration fee of 180 ECU includes participation fee, full board
 and accommodation costs, social events and school proceedings. It should be
 paid before August 10, in USD or Polish zloties (equivalent of 180 ECU
 on the day of payment) to the following account:

 Bank Slaski I/O Gliwice
 nr 312679-0020016301
 with annotation: Summer School GL 1340

 The registration fee can be also paid after arrival, in cash.
 In that case it will be increased to equivalence of 200 ECU.

 Registration
 ============
 The registration desk in the lobby of "Siwarna" will be open on 
 Saturday,
 August 31, from 16:00 to 22:00 and on Sunday, September 1, from 8:00
 to 14:00.

 Social Events
 =============
 Banquet
 Mountain Trip / Sight-seeing tour (one day)
 The day of social events will not be established until the beginning
 of the Summer School, since mountain trip depends on weather 
 conditions.

 Transport
 =========
 There are regular train links with Zakopane from Warsaw, Wroclaw,
 Krakow and Katowice (in which airports are located). The timetables
 are available upon request under address given below. There are also
 regular bus links between Zakopane and each of these cities.
 To reach "Siwarna" from the bus or railway station you may take one
 of a number of minibuses (price about 1 zloty), a taxi or a bus
 to Koscielisko Valley. In the last case leave at Krzeptowki II stop
 and continue on foot (about 2 km).


 Currency
 ========
 Two currencies are valid in Poland: new zloty and old zloty.
 One new zloty equals ten thousand old zloties
 All prices are usually given in new zloties or both new and old
 zloties. USD exchange rate is about 2.7 new zloties
 for one USD.
 Money can be exchanged in exchange offices (marked "Kantor")
 and banks.

 Weather
 =======
 Although in September weather in Zakopane is usually nice,
 since it is situated in high mountains, participants should
 be prepared for any kind of weather, including strong wind
 and rain.
