History This conference can be considered a continuation
of previous meetings on Geometry and Mathematical Physics which took place
in Bulgaria - Zlatograd (1995) and Varna (1998, 1999,
2000 and 2001).
The overall aim is to bring together experts in Classical and Modern
Differential Geometry, Complex Analysis, Mathematical Physics and related
fields to assess recent developments in these areas and to stimulate research
in related topics.
"Geometry" in the title refers to modern differential geometry of real
and complex manifolds with some emphasis on curves, sigma models and minimal
"Integrability" to either the integrability of complex structures or classical
dynamical systems of particles, soliton dynamics and hydrodynamical flows
presented in geometrical form, and
"Quantization" to the transition from classical to quantum mechanics expressed
in geometrical terms.
Place The workshop will take place in a stimulating
environment, which combines a virgin natural landscape with tourist comfort
and the unexpected neighbourhood of an ancient historical past.
All this in a splendid part of the northern Bulgarian Black Sea coast
in the vicinity of Varna.

Talks As previous years we plan to have a
few Lecture Courses of 3--5 talks each
which will be delivered by:
Proceedings The Proceedings will be published by an
internationally recognized scientific publisher.
A. Hirshfeld -- Applications of Deformation Quantization in Quantum Mechanics
and Field Theory,
R.-P. Holzapfel -- Enumerative Geometry For Geodesics
On Complex Hyperbolic Surfaces With Cusps,
G. Naber -- Equivariant Localization: Exactness of the Stationary Phase
R. Schmid -- Diffeomorphism, Gauge and Loop Groups.
Lie Groups of Pseudodifferential and Fourier Integral
and at least 30 minute talks by the other contributors.
Volumes of Previous Conferences
Registration There will be a nominal registration
fee of $150 if this is done through a bank
transfer up to March 31, 2002. This fee covers the copy of the
Proceedings and the organized activities during the Conference. Later
registration paid directly upon arrival will be $200.
We regret that no personal cheques, bank drafts or travelers cheques
Accommodation In the SANA hotel and the hotels in
Sts. Constantine and Elena around the conference hall. It is assumed that
6 June and 15 June are the arrival, respectively
the departure days. Please, notice that there is not a local organizing
Committee in Varna and earlier arrival
will create a lot of problems. However the stay after the Conference
can be arranged. Approximately $35--45(depending on the room) per day including
meals and please notice again that this should be paid in cash.
