The Institute of Physics, Beograd, Yugoslavia and The Max-Planck-Institute of Physics, Munchen, Germany, and Department of Physics, University of Nis, are organizing Summer School in Modern Mathematical Physics. The School is planning for August 13-25, 2001 in Sokobanja, Yugoslavia. (Sokobanja is one of the best known spas in Serbia, about 230 km on south-east from Beograd. The curative waters are recommended for treatment of many diseases.) The programme is oriented to some mathematical methods in Quantum Field Theory and String Theory (noncommutativity, supersymmetry, M(atrix) theory, string field theory,...) . The lectures will be delivered at the level suitable for postgraduate students in Theoretical Physics and Mathematics.

The number of participants is expected to be about 45. Lecturers are asked to give 3-4 lectures. Some introductory lectures on important general mathematical and physical concepts in this field will be provided by Yugoslav researchers. Some seminars will be also included to connect different subjects and to give more complete information on recent achievements. Some lecture notes will be published after the School. Stay expenses and some travel expenses for lecturers, as well as for participants from states of former Yugoslavia and Balkan region, will be covered by organizers.

The organizers of the School will take care also: 1) to support Yugoslav experts and young scientists in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics to create active collaboration and fruitful research in modern Mathematical Physics, 2) to revive connections and collaboration between colleagues from republics of former Yugoslavia, and 3) to improve scientific relations with colleagues from Europe and all over the world.
