Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics
"Strongly Correlated Systems
and Critical Phenomena"

Dubna, August 26 - September 5, 1997

The Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research is organizing an International School on "Strongly Correlated Systems and Critical Phenomena", which will be held at Dubna, from August 26 - September 5, 1997. It is supposed that the School will be sponsored by the "Heisenberg-Landau Program".

The main objective of the School is to provide a good introduction to current research for postgraduate students and young research workers. Traditionally Dubna is a meeting place for physicists from East and West and we hope that the School will provide a unique opportunity for contacts, scientific and human, between outstanding researchers and the beginners both from Western countries and FSU scientific centers.

The main topics of the School are

The number of participants is restricted to 50 - 60 students of higher courses from Germany and other Western countries as well as from JINR (Dubna), Russian and FSU scientific centers.

It is also planned to organize seminars for the participants on problems of mutual interest.

The working language of the School will be English.
