The international symposium on “Symmetry Methods in Physics”, organized by YSU International Center for Perspective Research and Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, was launched on July 9 and was summarized today.
The conference, which is held once every two years, was established in 1993 at the University of Dubna. Over the years, it has been held in addition to Dubna also in the Czech Republic, and in recent years the conference has “settled down” in Armenia. Scientists from the United States, Mexico, France, Italy, Great Britain, Germany, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Belarus and other countries have arrived in Yerevan to participate in the 17th International Conference.
“This year we decided to hold a conference with one section so that everyone could attend it. We have different duration reports. Importantly, Armenian specialists are also involved. People here find associates, colleagues working on the same topics, and there are scientific contacts that turn into practical cooperation,” - says Georgi Poghosyan, Director of the International Center for Perspective Research at Yerevan State University.
Professor of the Center for Physical Sciences at the National University of Mexico, Court Bernardo Wolf, has rich experience in cooperating with the Armenian scientists. He has begun to work with them since the Soviet era: “At the moment we have joint work with Mr. Poghosyan. Of course, it is quite difficult today to write an article on theoretical physics to draw attention on it, but we have directions where there is much to study.”
Sergei Vinitski, a researcher from Dubna Bogomolov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, also works with Armenian physicists for a long time and is a permanent participant of this conference and has recently been awarded the title of Honorary Professor at the Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) University.
“This is a very good platform to see with the latest research results in different scientific centers and find partners. Nearly 10 years ago I got acquainted with Hayk Sarsikyan and Hayk Ghazaryan and we are still working together on quantum dental research in nanotechnology. At this conference we have presented the latest results,” - says Mr. Vinitski.
It should be noted that starting with 2011, a summer school is also being adjunct to the conference with students from Armenia and different countries, and some of the lecturers are the participants of the conference. This year the Summer School will start in Tsaghkadzor on July 16.
