CERN – SEENET-MTP PhD Training Program continues

September 4th, 2015 No comments

phd-logoWe are pleased to announce that, after the first, successful, training seminar that was held in Belgrade (21-27 June 2015) in the framework of the CERN – SEENET-MTP PhD Training program, the program will be continued during autumn 2015, and during next 2 years.

The SEENET-MTP Office and the Program Committee are inviting the full SEENET-MTP member nodes, as well as the other nodes and partner institutions to submit the new or updated proposals and plans for next three years. It would be an expression of concrete interest in participation in this program and a great contribution to create a self-consisting and efficient plan of activities. It is advised to use the same form which was provided previously and send the form to

International Conference p-ADICS.2015

mpfInternational Conference on p-Adic Mathematical Physics and its Applications (p-ADICS.2015) will start on  Monday, September 7th, 2015. in Belgrade (Serbia). The conference will be closed on September 12th, 2015.

The conference is devoted to recent developments in p-adic mathematical physics, its applications and related areas. The number of participants is expected to be about 70. Proceedings as selected papers of presented talks will be published in the journal p-Adic Numbers, Ultrametric Analysis and Applications.

The p-ADIC.2015 conference is organized by Mathematical Institute of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Belgrade, Serbia); Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade (Belgrade, Serbia); Faculty of Sciences, University of Niš (Niš, Serbia) and Steklov Mathematical Institute (Moscow, Russia) in cooperation with the Southeastern European Network in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics (SEENET-MTP) and International Center for Mathematical Modeling in Physics, Engineering, Economics, and Cognitive Science, Linnaeus University (Växjö-Kalmar, Sweden).

The list of the speakers and talks is available here.

Dragovich Fest

One day (11.09.2015) of this conference will be organized in honour of Branko Dragovich’s 70th birthday. Branko Dragovich made a significant contribution to foundation and developmet of p-adic mathematical physics and its applications. This day will be devoted to talks in close relation to Dragovich activity not only in p-adics but also in some other fields of modern mathematical and theoretical physics.

Organizing Committee of Dragovich Fest: Igor V. Volovich (Russia), Co- Chairman; Goran S. Djordjević (Serbia), Co-Chairman; Irina Ya. Arefeva (Russia); Andrei Yu. Khrennikov (Sweden); Sergei V. Kozyrev (Russia); Ljubiša Nešić (Serbia); Yakov V. Radyno (Belarus); Zoran Rakić (Serbia); Branislav Sazdović (Serbia); Branko Urošević (Serbia).

“Cosmology and Particle Physics beyond Standard Models” is published

cern-cdsIt is a great pleasure to announce that International Theme Collection “Cosmology and Particle Physics beyond Standard Models – Ten Years of the SEENET-MTP Network” edited by Luis Álvarez-Gaumé, Goran S. Djordjević and Dejan Stojković is published in cooperation with CERN publishing Unit.

The volume can be find at

The publication is dedicated to the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Southeastern European Network in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics (SEENET-MTP).This volume consists of 14 overviews, research papers and a short note. However, some of them are excellent examples of a nowadays increasingly deep interplay between particle physics and cosmology. Contributions span a wide range of topics in cosmology, particle physics, but also gravity, including the interface of these fields. The presented work is of both theoretical and experimental/observational nature.
