Second Announcement - List of Talks and Preliminary Programme


will be held June 3--10,  2004

Sts. Constantine and Elena resort (near Varna), Bulgaria

First Announcement


History  This conference can be considered a continuation of previous meetings on Geometry and Mathematical Physics which took place in Bulgaria - Zlatograd (1995) and Varna (1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003).

    • "Geometry" in the title refers to modern differential geometry of real and complex manifolds with some emphasis on curves, sigma models and minimal surface theory,
    • "Integrability" to either the integrability of complex structures or classical dynamical systems of particles, soliton dynamics and hydrodynamical flows presented in geometrical form, and
    • "Quantization" to the transition from classical to quantum mechanics expressed in geometrical terms.

The overall aim is to bring together experts in Classical and Modern Differential Geometry, Complex Analysis, Mathematical Physics and related fields to assess recent developments in these areas and to stimulate research in related topics.

Place   The workshop will take place in a stimulating environment, which combines a virgin natural landscape with tourist comfort and the unexpected neighbourhood of an ancient historical past.
All this in a splendid part of the northern Bulgarian Black Sea coast in the vicinity of Varna.

Organizing Committee   Ivailo M. Mladenov (Sofia) and  Allen  Hirshfeld (Dortmund)

Advisory Committee   A.Calini (Charleston),  T. Iwai (Kyoto),  P. Olver (Minnesota), 
R. Schmid (Emory),  A. Ungar (Fargo)  and  I. Vaisman (Haifa)

International Standing Committee   M. Gurses  (Ankara),  B. Konopelchenko (Lecce),  
M. de Leon (Madrid),  G. Naber (Chico),  A. Odzijewicz (Bialystok)  and   H. Sato (Nagoya)

Talks  As previous  years we plan to have a few Lecture Courses of  3--5  talks each
which will be delivered by:

  • Francesco Calogero  -  Isochronous Systems
  • Allen Hirshfeld  -  Integrability in Quantum Mechanics
  • Bernard Kay - Topics in Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetime
  • Mikhail Karasev -   Intrinsic Dynamics of Manifolds and Quantization
  • and at least 30 minute talks by the other contributors
Proceedings  The Proceedings will be published by an internationally recognized scientific publisher.

Registration fee  There will be a flat registration fee of $400/ $500 for a double/single room accomodation.
Besides the room  this fee covers  three meals per day,  reception, excursion, refreshments, banquet and
a copy of the Conference Proceedings  volume. Please notice  that  this  fee should be paid  in cash  upon
arrival and  that no personal cheques, bank drafts or travelers cheques can be accepted.

Early Registration
  Please, complete and send your  Registration Form  as soon as possible.

A limited number of fellowships will be available for young researchers from Romania,
Russia and other former Soviet Republics. In order to apply, please send a CV and copies of the
papers (not files!) related to the Conference topic, as early as possible to the conference address in Sofia.

Accommodation  In the SANA hotel and the hotels in Sts. Constantine and Elena around the conference hall.
It is assumed that  3  June  and  10 June  are the arrival,  respectively the departure days. Please, notice that
there is not a local organizing Committee in Varna  and earlier arrival  will create a lot of problems.
However the stay after the Conference can be arranged.

Flight connections  In case you have difficulty finding suitable flight connections, please contact
Allen Hirshfeld.
