First Announcement


An Advanced Research Workshop of the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization

24-27 September 2000 Kiev, Ukraine

TIPTOP Announcement


A NATO ARW is a meeting of two to five days' duration, involving between 20 and 50 participants. A NATO ARW is not an international conference or symposium but rather a forum for advanced level, intensive discussions between qualified experts from different countries, and often from different research sectors.

Scope and Purpose: The main goal of this NATO Advanced Research Workshop is to bring together scientists from quantum field theory, string theory and quantum gravity with researchers in as well as experts on representation theory of these algebras will have a stimulating effect on each side and will lead to new developments. In each field there is a highly developed knowledge by experts which can only be transformed to another field by having close personal contact through discussions, talks and reports. The Workshop will promote the development of new directions in the field of modern theoretical and mathematical physics combining the efforts of scientists from NATO, East European countries and NIS (Former Soviet Union). ********************************************************************

NATO Advanced Research Workshop

Left margin 3.5 cm 2.5 cm Right margin


B. Petrov, Yu. Ivanov ....
Institute of Theoretical Physics, Kiev, Ukraine

The main goal of this NATO Advanced Research Workshop is to discuss new trends and key scientific advances that can fuel future innovations in biosensors, to give the ground for close collaboration of the participants ... The authors would like to acknowledge the generosity of NATO in its support for this workshop .



Suggested Topics for Discussion:

I. Novel approaches in quantum groups.

II. New trends in developing supersymmetric unified models.



While individuals will not be charged a registration fee for the workshop there will be a charge for transportation and the social program. The cost of accommodation (including meals) for registered participants will not exceed $100 per day. Some funding is available to support presenters of select contributions.

Travel and living expenses of key speakers will be covered in full. It is planned to cover living expenses of other participants from NATO and Partner countries in full. Travel expenses of other participants from NATO and Partner countries will be covered partially, within limits provided by NATO (for participants from NIS - in full). Most probably, it will be about 50-60% of the cost of air ticket in ECONOMY class.

Each extra day of attendance (before 24 and after 27 September) should be paid by the participant on arrival (in cash, 100US$/day - accommodation and meals).


Working language of the meeting: English.



The abstracts will be published as a separate issue before the Workshop.

The scientific report of ARW will be published in NATO ASI Series as a separate book by Kluwer Academic Publishers.

Please think about preparation of articles till 10-15 pages in (AMS)Latex 2e now. They will be accepted during the time before and 1 month after the Workshop.



Deadline for submission of abstracts and/or registration forms is August 1, 2000.

They should be mailed or e-mailed (much preferably) to:

Theory Division
Nuclear Physics Laboratory
Kharkov National University
61077 Kharkov, Ukraine

Fax: +38-0572-219818 (by previous demand)



Instructions For Preparing Abstracts:

1. Members of the Scientific Committee will evaluate the acceptability of the submitted abstracts on the basis of relevance to the ARW, significance of the topic, and clarity of the presentation.

2. General Instructions for submission of abstracts. The abstracts must be submitted in two ways:
- on paper* three copies (in exceptional case);
- via E-mail (in ASCII or DOC) to *

*Note that the paper copies are unnecessary if the Author(s) are able to email the abstract prepared as a binary encoded file in the PC version of MS Word 6/7/97/2000 for Windows (Rich Text Format is preferable).

The deadline for submission of abstracts is August 1, 2000.

Fax transmissions are acceptable in exceptional case with previous notification.



The accuracy of the abstracts is the responsibility of the authors. Any errors made in the submitted abstract may appear in the published abstract.

The header, Title, abstract and acknowledgement(s) should occupy a space 3.0 cm from the top of the page, 3.5 cm from the left, 2.5 from the right, and 2.5 cm from the bottom of the page.

Header - "NATO Advanced Research Workshop" must be typed in the immediate upper left hand corner followed by a line space and the main topic for which you submitted the abstract.

TITLE - Upper case letters after one line-space.

Authors - Type each author's name italicized. Underline presenting author's name. Use periods with no space between initials. Omit academic degrees. List all authors' names before typing any affiliations.

Affiliations - List affiliations after list of authors and one line space. Type the name of the institution, city, and country in a contiguous line.

Body - The text should be entered two line spaces after affiliations in a single paragraph (Do not indent first line).

Tables, illustrations halftones and color photography are not acceptable.
