The Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics is the annual international conference in the field of mathematical physics and mathematics organized by the Department of Mathematical Physics of the University of Białystok, Poland.

The topics covered at the Białowieża meetings span wide areas of classical and quantum physics, geometry, topology, analysis and algebra, inspired by geometric approaches to problems arising in physics.

The conference offers an excellent opportunity for the exchange of ideas between physicists and mathematicians, in an informal and inviting setting. We especially encourage the participation of early career scientists.

The programme consists of invited plenary lectures (55 minutes), as well as other invited and contributed talks (40 or 25 minutes). Participants are also offered the possibility of presenting their contributions in poster form.

- infinite-dimensional groups
- integrable systems
- Lie groupoids and Lie algebroids
- noncommutative geometry
- operator algebras
- quantization
- representation theory
- statistical mechanics
- symplectic and Poisson geometry

This year, a Special Session will be held in honour of Prof. Daniel Sternheimer's 80th birthday. Prof. Sternheimer, one of the originators of the method of deformation quantization, has been a frequent participant in the Białowieża workshop series. A short note about him (by Pierre Bieliavsky and Martin Schlichenmaier), published in an earlier Proceedings volume on the occasion of his 75th birthday, may be found at: Daniel Sternheimer.

Arrival date will be Saturday, June 30. The scientific activity will run from Sunday, July 1 till Saturday, July 7. There will be a conference bus from Warsaw (about 4 p.m.) to Białowieża on June 30 and back from Białowieża to Warsaw on July 8, in time for early afternoon flights or train departures.

The 2018 Workshop will take place in the heart of the Białowieża primeval forest - a site of great natural beauty. We plan a number of special events during the XXXVII Workshop, including a campfire, a banquet and an excursion (probably to the Strictly Protected Area of Białowieża forest). The last night in Białowieża is Kupala Night - with regional folk dances and music concluding in a midnight search for the "fern flower".

The conference fee is 150 EUR and the cost of living expenses is 350 EUR. It covers full board and lodging (double room) within walking distance from the lecture hall, transportation from Warsaw to Białowieża and back as well as social events. Accommodation in a single room costs an additional 100 EUR. However due to the limited hotel service in Białowieża this may not be possible in all cases. There is a cost of 300 EUR for each accompanying person.

The fees should be paid in cash during the week of the conference and we can accept the equivalent in USD or PLN. Unfortunately we cannot accept credit cards, personal checks, bank drafts or travelers checks. In some cases we can offer participants a reduction of the conference fee (e.g. for graduate students).

There will be a school for young researchers and graduate students in the week preceding the Workshop. The VII School on Geometry and Physics will start on Monday, June 25 and last till Friday, June 29. The total cost of the School is 300 EUR (includes board and accomodation). Arrival date will be Sunday, June 24 and departure date will be Saturday June 30.

During the School we plan to organize several 3h courses by leading experts in mathematical physics. Speakers include Alexander Helemskii (Moscow), Gabriel Larotonda (Buenos Aires), Adam Skalski (Warsaw), Armen Sergeev (Moscow) and Nikolai Tyurin (Dubna). The most recent programme can be found at
