             2002 Copper Mountain Conference on Iterative Methods

General Information

The conference will be held in Copper Mountain, Colorado (USA) from Sunday,
March 24 to Friday, March 29, 2002.  This is the seventh in an every other
year conference series on iterative methods and related topics at this
location.  The eighth conference will be in late March or early April, 2004.
