Arrival day is July 30th, departure day is August 5th, the conference days are July 31st – August 5th. Conference Program will include plenary and section talks and also informal discussions on various problems of modern theoretical and mathematical physics, related to quantum field theory, gravity and their intersections. Conference language is English.

Publication of the Conference Proceedings is planned.

The registration fee, which partially covers break refreshments, social program, welcome party, banquet, transportations and a copy of the Proceedings, is 150 Euro. There is no registration fee
for participants permanently working in the Republics of the former Soviet Union. We recommend to young Russian participants to apply to Russian Foundation of Basic Research ( for the grants. Costs for hotel accommodation will be corresponded in the 2nd Announcement. Some restricted finance support from TSPU will probably be provided for young participants. We are going to apply to Russian Foundation for Basic Research and Dynasty Foundation for grants to cover the travel and hotel expenses for some number of participants from the Republics of the former Soviet Union.

We will send you the 2nd Announcement in May, 2012 and a preliminary program of the Conference at the end of June – beginning of July, 2012.
