XIII. International Workshop




17 - 23 June 2019, Varna, Bulgaria

Scope and Topics:

The meeting covers the whole field of Lie Theory in its widest sense together with its applications in many facets of physics. As interface between mathematics and physics the workshop serves as a meeting place for mathematicians and theoretical and mathematical physicists.
The first three workshops were organised in Clausthal (1995,1997,1999), the 4th, 6th and 12th were part of the 2nd, 4th, 10th Symposium 'Quantum Theory and Symmetries' in Cracow (2001), Varna (2005, 2017), the was organised in Varna (2003), the 6-th was part of the 4th Symposium 'Quantum Theory and Symmetries' in Varna (2005), but has its own volume of Proceedings, the 5th, 7th to 11th were organised in Varna (2003,2007-2015), see: http://theo.inrne.bas.bg/~dobrev/

The preliminary programme includes the following topics:

- Representation Theory
- Infinite-Dimensional Lie Groups and Algebras
- Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory
- Superalgebras and Supergroups
- Quantum Groups and Noncommutative Geometry
- Symmetries of Linear and Nonlinear PDO
- Special Functions
- Operator Algebras
- Symmetries in String Theory
- Supergravity
- Conformal Field Theories
- Integrable Systems

Conference Site and Travel:

The Conference site is situated in the resort area extending to the north-east of Varna on the Black Sea Coast. Varna is Bulgaria's third largest city and main naval port. The most convenient way to travel from abroad is by plane to Varna airport. In the summer there are many regular (daily) flights to Varna from many European cities and regular daily flights from Sofia (Bulgaria's capital). The latter is connected with Europe's major cities by regular daily flights. Travel by train is to Varna railway station. The airport (railway station) is about 25 km (10 km) from the Conference site with direct bus connections. Detailed travel information will be given later.

The registration procedure will be announced in February-March 2019, the registration deadline will be about two months later.

Organizing Committee: V.K. Dobrev (Chair), L.K. Anguelova, V.I. Doseva, A.Ch. Ganchev, K.K. Marinov, D.T. Nedanovski, S.J. Pacheva, T.V. Popov, D.R. Staicova, M.N. Stoilov, N.I. Stoilova, S.T. Stoimenov
