Dear Participants,First I would like to thank ong>theong> Programme ong>andong> Organizing Committees ong>ofong> ong>theong>International conference on Computer Systems ong>andong> Technology CompSysТech’2005for inviting me to be present at its opening.The Ministry ong>ofong> Education ong>andong> Science considers that convening such a conference atong>theong> beginning ong>ofong> ong>theong> 21 st century, which is announced as a Century ong>ofong> ong>theong> InformationTechnologies, is more than necessary. That is why for six years in a row ong>theong> Ministrysupports ong>theong> idea ong>ofong> ong>theong> Academic Society ong>ofong> Lecturers in Computer Systems ong>andong>Technologies ong>andong> agreed to be a patron ong>ofong> ong>theong> conference.Today, when ong>theong> Computer Systems ong>andong> Technologies penetrate deeper ong>andong> deeperin all spheres ong>ofong> ong>theong> human activities, it is ong>ofong> great importance to strengong>theong>n ong>andong>deepen ong>theong> links between scientists ong>andong> specialists working in this area, to accelerateong>theong> exchange ong>ofong> information about research ong>andong> development results. This exactly isong>theong> objective ong>ofong> CompSysTech’2005.This is ong>theong> sixth edition ong>ofong> ong>theong> conference, but it has already received internationalpublicity ong>andong> recognition. An evidence for this is ong>theong> fact that ong>theong> conference wasincluded in ong>theong> events calendar ong>ofong> one ong>ofong> ong>theong> biggest ong>andong> most influential scientificorganisations in ong>theong> computer field, namely ong>theong> Association for Computing Machinery,as well as ong>theong> participation ong>ofong> many scientists from European countries ong>andong> ong>theong> USA.During ong>theong>se six years Your Society has strengong>theong>n its positions as a workingAcademic Society ong>andong> initiated projects with a national importance like ong>theong>establishment ong>ofong> ong>theong> Virtual Department ong>ofong> Computing "John Atanasong>ofong>f", ong>theong>Virtual Faculty ong>ofong> Information ong>andong> Communication Technologies ong>andong> ong>theong>Bulgarian Virtual University, which are developing very successfully thanks to ong>theong>close cooperation with ong>theong> Information ong>andong> Communication TechnologiesDevelopment Agency.As a conclusion I wish all ong>theong> participants in ong>theong> conference a good health ong>andong> acreative work!Igor DamyanovMinister ong>ofong> ong>theong> Ministry ong>ofong> Education ong>andong> Science.
