Subject: Wavelet Code Availability

Does anybody know where I could get any code to
do wavelet transforms? Being able to
choose the wavelet would be nice, but just
the Haar wavelet would be ok too.

Final Call for Papers

Second International Conference on Industrial and Applied Mathematics
(ICIAM 91)
July 8-12, 1991
Washington, D.C., USA

Hosted by SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics)

Interested in Participating?


Message to SIAM Members:

The International Conference on Industrial and Applied Mathematics is an
important international event that occurs every four years. It is meant to
spotlight the applied and computational community and focus worldwide
attention on mathematics professionals. There will be no SIAM Annual Meeting
in 1991. Make plans to attend ICIAM 91.

See you in D.C.!

ICIAM 91 Update

o More than 1200 applied and computational mathematicians, engineers and
scientists worldwide have already sent in requests for abstract and
minisymposium proposal forms.

o More than 35% of the requests are from outside the U.S.A.

o More than 60 representatives throughout the world are distributing ICIAM 91

o Proposals and abstracts already received encompass exciting and recent
advances in applied and computational mathematics.

o It's not too early!

This conference is truly anticipated as an international forum for applied and
computational mathematicians and users of mathematics. Be a part of
it...contribute a paper...come to Washington, D.C.! If you still haven't
expressed your interest to us, please contact us to ensure that you stay on
the ICIAM 91 mailing list.

Conference Topics

Applied and Computational Mathematics, Computer Science, Applied Probability
and Statistics, Scientific Computing, and Applications in Engineering and the
Biological, Chemical, and Physical Sciences.

Contributed Presentations - Posters and Lectures

Participate in ICIAM 91 by submitting a paper, which you may present in
lecture or poster format. The ICIAM 91 Program Committee is encouraging
contributors to present their papers in poster form to increase communication
among participants, foster the development of international friendships, and
reduce the need for large numbers of parallel sessions.

Authors will have approximately 15 minutes for contributed presentations
(lecture format), with an additional 5 minutes for questions. Alternatively,
they may elect the poster format that encourages interactive discussions with
individuals interested in their work using flip charts and other visual aids.

If you desire to present a paper (lecture or poster format), you must submit a

summary not exceeding 100 words on an ICIAM 91 contributed paper/poster
presentation form or facsimile. You may also submit an abstract via e-mail.
Macros are available in LaTeX or TeX. To receive macros via e-mail contact Papers will be reviewed by the program committee.
Everyone who submits a paper will be notified by mail regarding acceptance.

To obtain a form and guidelines for submitting a paper, please contact SIAM,
3600 University City Science Center, Philadelphia, PA 19104-2688; (215) 382-
9800; fax: (215) 386-7999; e-mail:

Deadline date for submission of contributed presentation forms: September 30,

About ICIAM 91

The conference organizers are developing a program that will focus worldwide
attention on the importance of mathematical and computational methods in the
solution of real world problems. A major exposition of computer hardware and
software exhibits and demonstrations that will enable you to explore
state-of-the-art technology is also planned.

In addition to a program highlighting important advances in research and
applications, there will be many opportunities for you to meet your colleagues
from other countries. A directory of preregistered attendees and exhibitors
(preregistered up to 3 weeks prior to conference) will be available at the
conference. A supplement for the balance of attendees will be available after
the conference.

To find out about the many exciting features of ICIAM 91 as they are
announced, please contact SIAM.


The conference will take place in Washington, D.C., at the Sheraton
Washington, where SIAM is holding a block of rooms for those wishing to stay
at the conferene site. The Sheraton is a modern air-conditioned hotel with
2,000 guest rooms, 25 meeting rooms, an exercise room, a large outdoor
swimming pool, and many restaurants and lounge areas. It is located on the
city's "Metro" subway system which provides easy inexpensive access to most
points of interest.

The hotel, on 12 acres of a wooded park-like setting, is within walking
distance of the National Zoo, a few blocks from the National Cathedral,
Embassy Row, historic Georgetown and Rock Creek Park. The Sheraton Washington
boasts a multi-lingual staff fluent in a total of 20 languages, foreign
currency exchange services, telex facilities, and electrical adapters. A U.S.
post office is on the premises.

For those seeking more economical accommodations, there will be a limited
number of dormitory rooms available on a first come first served basis at
George Washington University, just a few Metro stops away from the Sheraton
