(Southeastern European Network in
Mathematical and Theoretical Physics)
II International School on Modern Trends in
06.09. - 11.09.2008, Varna, Bulgaria
Satellite activity of the EU RTN-network
`Basic Constituents, Fundamental Forces and Symmetries of the Universe'
annual meeting, 11 - 17 September 2008, Varna, Bulgaria
The school is intended to contribute to the
interdisciplinary graduate training, to the internationalization of physics
education of students and of talented young scientists
by offering advanced graduate courses to be held in English. These courses include
specialized topics covering latest developments in the fields of research
within the scope of activity of the
and are intended to make the participation
of young people in the
RTN annual meeting
more efficient. It is expected the participants
to be mainly from the Balkan region and the EU RTN nodes,
and also from regions outside both networks.

Participants and Financial Support
The school is open to all physics graduate and PhD students, and young researchers
who may be interested in the topics (and of course senior scientists as well).
We expect the majority of the participants to be from the region and Europe.
The organizers will try to cover the expenses of students from the Balkan Network
countries. A limited number of grants for other participants could also possible.
Participants who need financial support should register as early as possible.
Participants from the Network node countries and outside the Network, applying
for financial support, should state it in the registration form.
A recommendation from the supervisor (addressed to the school e-mail) is welcome.
(Individual Grants - We encourage students eligible for support by EPS and EMS to
apply directly for the individual grants.)
