General Information

The XVI International Conference on Symmetry Methods in Physics (SYMPHYS-XVI), dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the birth of Professor Alexei Sissakian (1944-2010), organized by the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in collaboration with the International Center for Advanced Studies after A.N.Sissakian at Yerevan State University, will be held in Dubna, Moscow Region, Russia, from 13 to 18 of October, 2014.

The preliminary programme includes the traditional for SYMPHYS series of Conference topics:

  • Foundations of quantum mechanics;
  • Dynamical symmetry, separation of variables and superintegrability;
  • Symmetries of differential, difference and nonlinear equations;
  • Infinite-dimensional symmetries;
  • Lie groups, representation theory and special functions;
  • Superstrings, cosmology and quantum gravity;
  • Quantum optics, coherent states and quantum information;
  • Symmetry in molecular, atomic and nuclear physics;
  • High energy physics.

The program of the SYMPHYS-XVI Conference includes around 15 (45 minutes) talks scheduled for four morning sessions. The contributions (30 and 20 minutes) will be presented at the afternoon sessions. We are planning to have not more than three parallel sessions.

A total of about 100 scientists from all over the world are expected to attend the SYMPHYS-XVI Conference. It is scheduled to have four working days, the lectures start on Wednesday, October 15, at 10 a.m. and end on Saturday, October 18 at noon. On October 14 the Commemorative activities will take place. The arrival days are October 13 or 14 and departure days are October 18 or 19.
