Here one can find the conference programme.

We are pleased to announce that the 11th Conference of the Russian Gravitational Society will be held during the period of July 1-8, 2002 by Tomsk State Pedagogical University. Its programme includes lectures, original talks and informal discussions. The International Workshop "Gravity, Strings and Quantum Field Theory" is organized within the Conference. The aim of Conference and Workshop is to point out the new progress in gravity and its links to various directions of modern physics. We hope to attract to participation both actively working researchers and young scientists.

Venue of conference and accommodation:

We regret to say that the river ship which we planed to use for the conference is not available due to technical reasons. Therefore we ask all participants to confirm once more your participation in the conference.

The conference will be held in the city of Tomsk, at the Conference Center "Rubin". This is located in the Academic Campus 2 km from Tomsk. The participants will be accommodated in the hotel "Rubin". Prices for one night are for two room apartment -- $40, single room -- $25. The total living expenses (breakfast, lunch and dinner) will not exceed $20 a day.

The Organizing Committee has applied to some Russian funds for financial support. We hope to get a possibility to cover partialy accomodation and living expenses of Russian participants, especially young people.

Topics and coordinators:


One can reach Tomsk by plane or by train. There is a daily flight from Moscow (airport Vnukovo) made by air company "Siberia". It is recommended to book in advance a round ticket directly by "Siberia", which has representations in some European countries. The plane arrives to Tomsk at 6:30 a.m. of local time (0:30 of European Mean Time). There is an extra flight on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with time of arrival 18:30 and time of departure from Tomsk 19:30.
