6th Gamow International Conference in Odessa:
“New Trends in Cosmology, Astrophysics and HEP after Gamow”

“Astronomy and beyond: Astrophysics, Cosmology, Radioastronomy and Astrobiology”
11 – 19 August, 2019, Odessa, Ukraine
Updated. The conference photo album is available on Facebook.
These Conference and School are devoted to the 115th anniversary of George (Georgij ) Gamow, one of the greatest physicists and cosmologists of the 20th century. Gamow made an important and decisive contribution to modern physics, cosmology and biology. His three most significant contributions to these fields are:
- discovery of the quantum nature of alpha-decay in nuclear physics (1928);
- theory of the Hot Universe (1946-1953);
- clue to the genetic code in biology (1954).
George Gamow was born in Odessa. Here, after the completion of a secondary school, he was, for two years, a student at Novorossiisk University of Odessa. Wherever Gamow lived later, he retained his character and his sharp Odessian humor.
During the conference, the participants will be offered sightseeing tours around Odessa, to see and feel its colour and to walk along the Gamow places described in his book “My World Line: an Informal Autobiography”.
These Conference and School will be the 6th Gamow Conference in Odessa, after those in 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009, 2015, and the 19th annual Gamow School (starting from 2001). We intend to bring together experts, interested scientists and students in the fields of modern astrophysics, cosmology, high energy physics and biology in order to discuss the most recent developments and problems related to the conference topics, exchange ideas, and review major experimental and theoretical efforts. The program will consist of series of coordinated review lectures supplemented by short reports, poster presentations and discussions of the hottest problems of the observable Universe. The working language is English.
