|Dear Colleagues and Friends,|
International Conference "Physics and Control" (PHYSCON'03) is now a
part of history. It was a success, with more than 230 participants
from 32 countries. 92 participants came from outside of Russia,
including 18 from USA, 12 from Germany, 8 from Ukraine, 5 from
Japan, 5 from Italy. 244 papers have been published in four volumes
of the Proceedings, 206 talks of 253 included into the preliminary
program were presented, including 7 plenary, 23 invited and 32
poster talks. The Final Report that will be posted soon along with
the Conference Photo Gallery.
At the closing ceremony it was
decided to continue our activities and to organize next "Physics and
Control" Conference in 2-3 years.
Besides, many participants
expressed the wish to have a website with
Physics-and-Control-related information: news, conferences,
publications, virtual round table, links to other sites, etc.
PHYSCON'03 Organizing Committee would be happy to expand this
to a portal, containing various information
and links, including website of the next PhysCon Conference. An
initiative group coordinating further activities has been created on
the basis of PhysCon IPC. We invite you to visit our website again
and find further information.
Many thanks to all the
participants for their coming!
We will be really happy to meet
you in Saint Petersburg again.
