### General information

#### Organizers

Institute of Physics, Belgrade (Serbia) and Faculty of Mathematics, Belgrade (Serbia) are organizing the 8th MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS MEETING: Summer School and Conference on Modern Mathematical Physics. The Meeting will be held 24 - 31 August 2014 in the Institute of Physics, Belgrade, Serbia. August 24 is arrival and August 31 is departure day. Information about the previous meetings can be found here.

#### Topics

The Meeting's programme is mainly oriented towards some recent developments in Cosmology, Gravity, Quantum Field Theory, Particle Physics, Superstring/M-Theory, and Related Mathematical Tools. The topics are:

- Classical, Quantum and Nonlocal Cosmology
- Classical, Quantum and Modified Gravity
- Accelerating Universe and Dark Energy
- Conformal and Topological Field Theory
- Lie Theory and Symmetries in Physics
- Strings, Branes and String/M-Theory
- String Field Theory and p-Adic Strings
- Noncommutative Quantum Models
- Nonperturbative Approaches
- p-Adic Mathematical Physics
- Exact Integrable Models
- Mathematical Methods

Lecturers will give 2-4 lectures, starting from an introductory level which should be gradually advanced. At least one pedagogical course is planned. A number of short reports on the current research is also planned. A part of this Meeting is organized as a conference. The Proceedings of the previous meetings are published and we plan also to publish the Proceedings of this one.
#### Participants

The number of participants is expected to be about 80. They are usually from the region and Europe. The organizers wish to encourage the active participation of young researchers from former Yugoslavia, as well as from South-Eastern and Central-Eastern European countries. The organizers will attempt to cover their living and travel expenses as much as possible. Participants who need financial support should fill in registration form as soon as possible.

Objectives of these Meetings include: 1) contribution to the cooperation between scientists from the countries of the former Yugoslavia and building their working contacts with scientists from other European countries and from the rest of the world, 2) contribution to the progress of modern physics and mathematics in Serbia as well as in the region, and 3) improving situation to maintain gifted young researchers from the region to stay in their home countries.

#### Participation Fee

The conference fee is 120 Euro, and 60 Euro for students and accompanying persons. It includes transportation airport-hotel-airport, conference materials and copy of the Proceedings, refreshments during coffee breaks and conference dinner.
