The Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics has become one of the widely recognized, annual activities in the field of mathematical physics and applied mathematics. It has been organized every year since 1981 and has grown from a 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 2005 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 25. The scientific activity will run from Sunday, June 26 till Saturday, July 2 and will end with the Kupala Night (2/3 July). A number of social events, including a 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 25 and back from Bialowieza to Warsaw on July 3, for participants of the conference.


The topics covered in these meetings 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 XXIV Workshop will include among others

coherent state methods, infinite dimensional Lie groups and Lie algebras, integrable systems, noncommutative geometry Poisson and symplectic geometry, quantum gravity, quantum groups, quasicrystals, random matrices.


The list is tentative and some speakers have to confirm their participation. Also additional speakers will be included at a later time. The most recent list is always available at the conference page


Total cost of Workshop is 400 EUR, which will cover conference fee, 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.
