Es ist fur uns eine besondere Freude und Ehre, daB wir unsere diesjahrige Jahresver sammlung zusammen mit der DGOR durchftihren konnten. Der sehr gute Besuch von ins gesamt 296 Teilnehmem aus Deutschland, {)sterreich und der Schweiz beweist, daB das Operations Research auch heute noch eine recht gro~e Anziehungskraft besitzt. Dabei stehen die theoretischen Arbeiten zur Zeit eher im Vordergrund des Interesses. Die An wendung des OR auf die realen Probleme der Praxis sto~t dagegen leider nach wie vor auf gewisse Schwierigkeiten. Es ist nicht zu verkennen, daB gegentiber der Euphorie in den 60er-Jahren eine gewisse Emtichterung eingetreten ist. Dabei ist auch zu bedenken, daB heute manches unter OR segelt, das frillier zu den klassischen Disziplinen der allge meinen Betriebswirtschaftslehre gehorte. Hinzu kommen die Schwierigkeiten der gegen wartigen weltweiten Rezession. Sie waren zwar mit ihrem Zwang zur generellen Kosten einsparung ein guter Naturboden fur eine umfassende Optimierung auf allen Gebieten. Demgegentiber steht der Investitionsstop, der sich u. a. auch auf die Inangriffnahme gros serer Projekte, wie sie in der Regel OR-Anwendungen darstellen, auswirkt. Es war deshalb das gro~e Verdienst dieser gemeinsamen Tagung, daB einmal mehr versucht wurde. diese Brucke zwischen Theorie und Praxis zu schlagen und auch zu zei gen, daB sowohl in der industriellen Fertigung, wie auch in den Dienstleistungsbetrie ben und in den Offentlichen Verwaltungen nach wie vor ein dankbares Feld fur die An wendung von OR-Methoden vorhanden ist.

Annotation The International Conference on Calorimetry in Particle Physics has become the major forum for state-of-the-art developments of calorimetry techniques. The tenth conference was attended by about 150 physicists from 20 countries and covered all aspects of calorimetric particle detection and measurements, with emphasis on high energy physics experiments as well as experiments in nuclear physics and astrophysics.The proceedings contain three parts: introductory papers, contributed papers and a summary. The introductory papers start with a historical review of the development of calorimetry technology, and continue with overviews of the current status of calorimetry in high energy physics and astrophysics, which are followed by discussions on calorimetry in future accelerator facilities, such as linear colliders and the Super B Factory. A "hot" technology regarding the "energy flow concept" is also dealt with

Henry O. Pollak Chairman of the International Program Committee Bell Laboratories Murray Hill, New Jersey, USA The Fourth International Congress on Mathematics Education was held in Berkeley, California, USA, August 10-16, 1980. Previous Congresses were held in Lyons in 1969, Exeter in 1972, and Karlsruhe in 1976. Attendance at Berkeley was about 1800 full and 500 associate members from about 90 countries; at least half of these come from outside of North America. About 450 persons participated in the program either as speakers or as presiders; approximately 40 percent of these came from the U.S. or Canada. There were four plenary addresses; they were delivered by Hans Freudenthal on major problems of mathematics education, Hermina Sinclair on the relationship between the learning of language and of mathematics, Seymour Papert on the computer as carrier of mathematical culture, and Hua Loo-Keng on popularising and applying mathematical methods. Gearge Polya was the honorary president of the Congress; illness prevented his planned attendence but he sent a brief presentation entitled, "Mathematics Improves the Mind". There was a full program of speakers, panelists, debates, miniconferences, and meetings of working and study groups. In addition, 18 major projects from around the world were invited to make presentations, and various groups representing special areas of concern had the opportunity to meet and to plan their future activities.
