This will be the first time ever that we will meet in the Central European nation of Poland, a country that has produced Nobel Laureates such as Maria Sklodowska-Curie (Physics, 1903; Chemistry, 1911), Albert Abraham Michelson (Physics, 1907), Walter Hermann Nernst (Physics, 1922), Shmuel Yosef Agnon (Literature, 1966), Lech Walesa (Peace, 1983), and Gunter Blobel (Medicine, 1999), to name a few. 


SUT, led by Rector Zielinski, is at the forefront of the reform movement in engineering education in Poland. During ICEE-2005, he and his colleagues would like to welcome you, to learn about you work, experiences and your ideas, and to share with you the experiences of their colleagues from the many excellent academic institutions from all over Poland. They will also show you the many interesting historical and cultrual sites in the Silesian region of Poland. Nearby are Czech Republic and Ukraine, each a short drive away.  


We urge you to respond affirmatively to this unique opportunity and accept their invitation. The deadline is: January 31, 2005.

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the ICEE 2005 Organizing Committee we would like to invite you to participate in the International Conference on Engineering Education in Gliwice, Poland, July 25-29, 2005, organized by the SIlesian University of Technology. The general objective of the ICEE conferences is the promotion of international collaboration in the field of engineering education, with special focus on modern methods and tools, as well as successful examples of networking and joint efforts with respect to universities students, teaching staff and governing bodies. Please refer to the ICEE 2005 website - http://icee2005.polsl.pl - for major topics and special sessions of the conference.

We would like to strongly encourage you to consider submitting the paper abstract, and further take part in the ICEE 2005 in Gliwice - in order to share your achievements in the fields of education and international collaboration. The deadline for abstracts submission is January 31, 2005, and the place to do this is the conference website: http://icee2005.polsl.pl. If you could encourage your colleagues to submit their contribution and participate in ICEE 2005, we would appreciate your help in creating the conference more interesting and successful.

While examining the ICEE 2005 website you will find that - apart from intensive technical program of the conference - we would like to acquaint you with some of the most beatiful places in the south of Poland, including the breathtaking monuments and atmosphere of Kraków - one of the oldest and the most beautiful towns in Poland. If your duties would allow you stay longer in Poland we definitely suggest visiting some the most picturesque and interesting parts of  our country - including Zakopane and Tatra Mountains, Masurian Lake District, Baltic Sea beaches and numerous historic places and monuments.

We look forward to seeing you in Gliwice in July.
