Following a well-established tradition initiated twenty years ago, the sixth edition of the

##
“International Conference on Functional Analysis and Approximation Theory”

FAAT 2009

will be held in Acquafredda di Maratea (Potenza, Italy) from September 24th to September 30th, 2009. The previous meetings were held in 1989, 1992, 1996, 2000 and 2004 at the same place.

The participants are expected to arrive on September 24th and to leave on September 30th. The opening ceremony will take place on September 25th at 9:00 a.m.

The sixth edition of the *International Conference on Functional Analysis and Approximation Theory (FAAT 2009)* is organized within the activities of the “** Center for Studies in Functional Analysis and Approximation Theory**” of the University of Basilicata (Potenza) in collaboration with the Research Group “**Real Analysis and Methods of Functional Analysis for Differential Problems and Approximation Problems**” of the University of Bari.

The Conference is also sponsored by

- the University of Basilicata,

- the University of Bari,

- the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Basilicata,

- the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Basilicata (Potenza),

- the Department of Mathematics of the University of Bari,

- the Department of Economic Sciences and Mathematical Methods of the University of Bari,
