## Topical Sessions

• Foundations of quantum mechanics;

• Integrable models;

• Symmetries of nonlinear differential equations;

• Infinite-dimensional symmetries;

• Duality in quantum field theory and quantum mechanics;

• Superstrings, cosmology, quantum gravity and topological defects;

• Group theory in modern geometry, noncommutative geometry;

• Loop algebras and W-algebras;

• Lie groups, representation theory and special functions;

• Quantum optics and quantum information;

• Symmetry aspect of classical and quantum chaos;

• Symmetries in particle, nucleare, atomic and molecular
physics;

• Symmetries in condensed matter physics and statistical physics.

• Modern application of group theory in biology.

Partially overlapping these topics, we are planning as substructures the following Symposia consisting of
several parallel sessions:

* • Symposium on Quantum Groups and Supersymmetry, (co-organizer Vladimir Dobrev and Alexey
Isaev )*

* • Symposium on Group Theory and Superintegrability, (co-organizer
Ernie Kalnins and Willard Miller)*

* • Symposium on Symmetries of Differenc equations and Discrete
Phenomena, (co-organizers Pavel Winternitz and Decio
Levi)*
