The Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics has become one of the most widely recognized, regular activities in the field of mathematical physics and applied mathematics. It has been organized every year since 1981 and has grown from a local regional meeting to its present international form, attracting leading physicists and mathematicians from all over the world.

The program consists of invited lectures, often of a review nature, as well as specialized, contributed talks.


The 2004 Workshop will take place in its home venue, in the heart of the Bialowieza National Park - a site of great natural beauty. Arrival date will be Saturday, June 26. The scientific activity will run from Sunday, June 27 till Saturday, July 3 and will end with the Magic Kupala Night (3/4 July). A number of social events, including campfire, an excursion to the Bialowieza forest and a banquet, are usually organized during the week.

There will be a special bus service from Warsaw to Bialowieza, on June 26 and back from Bialowieza to Warsaw on July 4, for participants of the conference.


The topics covered in these meetings usually span wide areas of mathematical physics and pure mathematics, inspired by physical problems. The conference offers good opportunities for exchange of ideas between physicists and mathematicians. Specific topics for the XXIII Workshop will include:


A. Banyaga (University Park, Penn State), J. Bros (Gif-sur-Yvette), Th. Friedrich (Berlin), A. Gorban (Zurich), P. Kramer (Tuebingen), J. Madore (Paris), V. Mathai (Adelaide), N. Moshchevitin (Moscow), A.M. Stepin (Moscow), T. Sunada (Kawasaki), A. Turbiner (Mexico City), S.L. Woronowicz (Warsaw)

Additional speakers may be included in the list.


The total cost of the Workshop is 400 EUR, which will cover full board and lodging in shared (double) rooms, transportation from Warsaw to Bialowieza and back. There is a possibility of getting single accommodation (at extra cost - not fixed at the moment) within walking distance from the main lecture hall - the number of single rooms is limited, however.

There is also the possibility of accommodating an accompanying person. There will be an extra charge of 200 EUR.
