Dedicated to the 65th Birthday of
Professor Giulio Casati

The organizers are particularly glad to have the chance of celebrating the 65th birthday of Professor Giulio Casati (born on 9 December 1942) from University of Insubria at Como, Italy (since 2005 also distinguished Professor of the of National University of Singapore), where he is working continuously since the foundation of this university, in which he was involved as the main founder. We feel deeply honoured by his attenting of our School and Conference, by the fact that he accepted our invitation to act as Honorary Director, along with the three other distinguished scientists and colleagues, namely Professors Predrag Cvitanovic of Atlanta, Siegfried Grossmann of Marburg and Hermann Haken of Stuttgart. Our Schools/Conferences have been dignified by the presence of Professor Giulio Casati, and his lecturing already since the year 1994 (2nd School/Conference). Professor Giulio Casati's contributions to science are immense and brilliant, not only in research, but in the general culture of science. He has organized so many historically important conferences, workshops, schools and other meetings, that it is impossible to list here all of them, and thus he contributed to the evolution of the scientific thought as well as to the evolution of the general social and cultural value of science. In these activities he has always paid a special attention to young people and supported them strongly. He is one of the initiators of the nonlinear science and of the physics of complex systems. His main contributions are in the field of classical and quantum chaos, statistical physics, theory of quantum information and quantum computers, and much more. His invaluable brilliant scientific contributions to this field of theoretical physics are of permanent value and are appreciated by all generations of scientists. We consider it a privilege to celebrate his 65th birthday at our 7th School/Conference, enjoying the opportunity to thank him sincerely for his great work and contributions to science and culture. Science is the universal culture, it is indeed Culture of the World. We look forward to our gathering in Maribor 2008 to cheerfully celebrate Professor Giulio Casati's 65th Birthday and to review his enormous scientific life opus and his current research work.
