Each year since 2013, the international collaboration "Regional Doctoral Program in Theoretical and Experimental Particle Physics" (until 2018, "Regional Network in Theoretical Physics"), which comprises different Universities and research institutions in Germany, Georgia and Armenia, organizes a PhD school and an accompanying scientific workshop in Georgia or Armenia. During these years, the event has become popular both among the experienced researchers and the students in a wider region, including -- besides Georgia and Armenia -- also Turkey, Iran, Azerbaijan, Russia and Ukraine. In 2020, due to the problems related with COVID-19, the 8th traditional meeting was held at a smaller scale, in a form of a two-days online workshop "Recent Advances in Mathematical Physics," which took
place on December 5 and 6.
The main purpose of the collaboration "Regional Doctoral Program in
Theoretical and Experimental Particle Physics" is the implementation of a structured doctoral training in the field of particle physics at the
Universities of Georgia and Armenia, bringing the quality of doctoral education in these countries closer to the standards, accepted at the leading Universities worldwide. A close collaboration with the German colleagues from the Universities of Bonn, Siegen and Forschungszentrum Jülich, who have rich experience in running such programs, plays a decisive role for the success of the project. This project is funded by Volkwagenstiftung, with the participation of Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation (Georgia), Science Committee of Armenia, ICTP, Tbilisi State University, Yerevan Physics Institute
and Yerevan State University. More information about the project can be found on the website of the collaboration:
The main topic of the present workshop was the classical and quantum
integrability and their applications. The aspects of integrability presented at the workshop included: the integrable sigma-models, superintegrable systems, Yang-Mills and higher spin theories, conformal field theory, as well as integrable models of supersymmetric
mechanics, etc. The proceedings, in addition, include a short PhD lecture course on integrable systems, which was delivered within the framework of the present project for the Armenian students by G. Arutyunov (University of Hamburg) earlier this year.
