XXXIX Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics 19.06–25.06.2022
XI School on Geometry and Physics 27.06–1.07.2022
In order to secure the right conditions for our Workshop we have decided to exceptionally move (only for this year's meeting) the site of our Workshop to the campus of our University in Białystok.

FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT


The Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics is the annual international conference in the field of mathematical physics and mathematics organized by the Chair of Mathematical Physics of the University of Białystok, Poland.

The topics covered at the Białowieża meetings span wide areas of classical and quantum physics, geometry, topology, analysis and algebra, inspired by geometric approaches to problems arising in physics.

The conference offers an excellent opportunity for the exchange of ideas between physicists and mathematicians, in an informal and inviting setting. We especially encourage the participation of early career scientists.

The programme consists of invited plenary lectures (55 minutes), as well as other invited and contributed talks (40 or 25 minutes). Participants are also offered the possibility of presenting their contributions in poster form.

FOCUS TOPICS in 2022

  • classical and quantum field theories
  • infinite-dimensional groups
  • integrable systems
  • Lie groupoids and Lie algebroids
  • noncommutative geometry
  • operator algebras
  • quantization
  • quantum groups
  • representation theory
  • symplectic and Poisson geometry

MIELNIK MEMORIAL SESSION

This year, a Special Session will be dedicated to the memory of Bogdan Mielnik, who died in January 2019. Bogdan was a professor at the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the University of Warsaw and at the Center for Advanced Studies in Mexico City. His profound and original results in the foundations of quantum mechanics are a lasting contribution to this field. For many years, Bogdan participated in our Workshops and presented ideas in the program as well as contributed outstanding talks and papers. Bogdan was also an excellent educator. He was the doctoral supervisor of many outstanding students. The organizing committee of the Special Session includes A. Odzijewicz (Białystok), David Fernández (Mexico City) and Piotr Kielanowski (Mexico City).

A short note about prof. Mielnik may be found here.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS

The Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet, and we recognize that some limitations may remain during our workshop. For this reason, on-line participation will be possible for those who will not be able to attend in person.

PLACE AND TIME

The arrival date is Saturday, June 18. The scientific activity will run from Sunday, June 19 till Saturday, June 25. There will be a conference bus from Warsaw (about 4 p.m.) to Białowieża on June 18 and back on Jube 26. The return bus will depart from Białowieża not later than 7:00 and should arrive in Warsaw about 12:00, in time for early afternoon flights or train departures.

The 2022 Workshop will take place in the heart of the Białowieża primeval forest - a site of great natural beauty. We plan a number of special events during the XXXIX Workshop, including a campfire, a banquet and an excursion (probably to the Strictly Protected Area of Białowieża forest).

ACCOMMODATION AND CONFERENCE FEE

Please refer to the Second Announcement for up to date information about registration fee.

The conference fee is €150 and the cost of living expenses is €500. It covers full board and lodging (single room) within walking distance from the lecture hall, transportation from Warsaw to Białowieża and back as well as social events. There is a cost of €350 for each accompanying person. The cost of the on-line participation is €60 which includes a copy of the printed proceedings.

The fees should be paid in cash during the week of the conference and we can accept the equivalent in USD or PLN. Unfortunately we cannot accept credit cards, personal checks, bank drafts or travelers checks. The fee can also be paid by wire transfer to the following bank account:

Account holder: UNIWERSYTET W BIAŁYMSTOKU UL ŚWIERKOWA 20B
Account number:    PL 61 1160 2202 0000 0002 4179 4419
SWIFT code:    BIGBPLPW
Bank Name:    Bank Millennium S.A.
Bank Address:    ul. Stanisława Żaryna 2A, 02-593 Warszawa, Poland
Purpose of the wire transfer: XXXIX WGMP, full name

In some cases we can offer participants a reduction of the conference fee (e.g. for graduate students).

XI SCHOOL FOR YOUNG RESEARCHERS

There will be a school for young researchers and graduate students in the week following the Workshop. The XI School on Geometry and Physics will start on Monday, June 27 and last till Friday, July 1. The total cost of the School is €300 (includes board and accomodation). Arrival date will be Sunday, June 26 and departure date will be Saturday July 2.

During the School we plan to organize several 3h courses by leading experts in mathematical physics. The lecturers and the titles of courses will be given in the second announcement.
