Dear colleagues,

The organizing committee reminds you that the 5th Ulyanovsk International School-Seminar on Theoretical and Observational Cosmology ­­­– UISS-2016 is to be held in Ulyanovsk at Ilya Ulyanov State Pedagogical University, on 19 –30 September, 2016.


The School-seminar will be divided for two parts (periods):

I. Scientific school for students, post-graduate students, PhD students and young scientists in the age till 35 years, who obtain new scientific results personally or with coauthor(s).
19 September – arrival day; 20-24 September – lectures sessions.


II. Scientific seminar on modified gravity and cosmology, physical basis of cosmology, relativistic astrophysics and gravitational experiments. Participants of Scientific school are cardinally invited to extend their visit for Scientific seminar.

25 September – arrival day; 26-29 September – seminar’s session; 30 September – departure day.

On-line registration is continuing on the School-seminar site http://uiss2016.ru.
