The International Union of Pure and Applied Physics declared the year 2005 as the World Year of Physics. The year 2005 marks the 100th anniversary of some of Einstein's most significant theories - theories which changed the way we view our universe and ourselves.

People all over the world are joining in the celebration of physics and its importance in our everyday lives. We too organize a meeting to celebrate this event.

We are pleased to inform you about the upcoming International Symposium "Topical Problems of Nonlinear Wave Physics-2005" and to invite you to attend it and make it a great scientific event. The Symposium will be held on board a comfortable boat cruising from St.-Petersburg to Nizhny Novgorod from August 2 through August 9, 2005.

This meeting is a logical continuation of the previous symposium "Topical Problems of Nonlinear Wave Physics-2003" (NWP-2003), with slightly changed topics for discussion in line with the present day trends, that was held in September 2003 and attracted leading experts from all over the world. The upcoming Symposium will be devoted to recent progress in the interrelated fields of nonlinear physics with applications to systems of different origin.  

The Symposium will include three parallel Topical Conferences:

and a few workshops on the topics within the symposium scope.

The Symposium is highly interdisciplinary in nature and opens rich opportunities for the interaction between the researchers active in diverse fields of fundamental physics of nonlinear waves and applications.

Each Topical Conference will include oral (invited and contributed talks) and poster sessions. Besides, some plenary lectures on interrelated topics are planned. A special session for young scientists will be held.

The format of the Symposium offers opportunities for unlimited discussions in addition to usual session presentations. The extremely attractive cruise route will make the meeting not only useful but very picturesque and pleasant too. A social program for participants and accompanying persons will include sightseeing and tours on the cruise route, music concerts aboard, and symposium dinner. 

Join the World Year of Physics 2005 celebration by attending our Symposium.
The Symposium organizers look forward to meet you this summer.
