cafeteria, etc) for a smooth running of the conference. The Mathematical
Department of the

program of the future conference will contain talks on various applications
of non-Euclidean geometry in modern physics and mathematics. Among them
there will be recent developments in astroparticle physics, namely the
evolution of the early universe, the problem of the dark matter and possible
geometrical interpretations, symmetries and their breakings in the hot and
dense universe, the fate of the late universe (flat, closed or open ?),
evolution of stars, supergravity and superstrings, the brane uviverse,
possibilities of detecting mini-black holes and higher dimensions in cosmic
rays and/or at accelerator (Fermilab) energies, quantum groups and quantum
deformations. All these topics are closely related to the non-Euclidean
geometry. Mathematical part of the discussion will contain recent
applications of non-Euclidean geometry to different topics of modern
mathematics - geometry, algebra, dynamical systems and other fields.
