We are organising a conference on the industrial applications of some particular aspects of discrete mathematics (coding theory, cryptography, optimisation, difference sets, ect..,) in order to promote an exchange of ideas among researchers from different areas (e.g., managers from private or public companies and academicians), with different background and different points of view. The conference will consist of five invited lectures of one hour each given by


R. Calderbank (AT&T Labs Research),

J. Jedwab (Hewlett-Packard Labs, Bristol),

B. Korte (Forchsungsinstitut fuer Diskrete Mathematik, Bonn),

J.H. van Lint (T.U. Eindhoven),

A. Mazzeo (University of Naples),

and about 10 selected short talks.

You are cordially invited to participate in Discrete Mathematics and Its Industrial Applications during the second week of June, 2001 on the Island of Capri and, if you wish, to present a half-hour talk on some aspect of your work related to the main topics of the Conference.
